Resheq: Palestinian Prisoners Not For Bargaining

Press Release – Palestinian Information Center

BEIRUT, (PIC)– Political bureau member of Hamas Ezzet al-Resheq said that Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails should not be exploited as bargaining chips.

He criticized, in this respect, the PA negotiating team for the way it managed the issue of prisoners. 

Resheq was speaking in a statement on his Facebook page commenting on the reported Israeli decision to free 104 prisoners as a step to go along with the resumption of negotiations with the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah.

He said that the liberation of prisoners as in the Wafa Al-Ahrar deal that humbled the Israeli arrogance was far better than the freedom of prisoners as means to resume negotiations that only serve the Israeli occupation’s schemes.

The Hamas leader recalled that the Wafa Al-Ahrar deal succeeded in liberating more than one thousand Palestinian prisoners in return for the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
