The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, affirms its full solidarity with the prisoners in the Israeli occupation prisons who have started a hunger strike as of last week.

Hamas reiterates its support to them in their open strike until they regain their rights and achieve their just demands from the so-called Israeli Prison Service.

Hamas declares its support and solidarity with the heroes behind bars and urges the Palestinian people on all levels and parties to support the prisoners’ cause in all ways possible until they achieve their legal and just demands as guaranteed by humanitarian and international law.

Hamas also calls upon humanitarian, human rights and international institutions to bear their responsibilities, to carry out their duties towards the Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli prisons, to end their suffering and to stop the Israeli violations, namely the policy of solitary confinement, medical negligence and other repressive measures taken against the prisoners.
