A Union of Good website has reported that Ufree, a Norway-based Hamas support NGO, will be intensifying its efforts in support of Palestinian prisoners ahead of its participation in the Palestinians in Europe Conference, to be held in Brussels in May. According to the report:
Humanityvoice – 2013-04-18 The Palestinian prisoner day UFree Network to defend the rights of Palestinian prisoners stressed the fairness of the issue of prisoners, criminalized the international silence regarding the Israeli practices against them, and called on the international community to confront the Israeli violations.
UFree, based in Oslo, said in its statement on the 39th anniversary of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Day, that the Palestinian prisoners will remain a distinguishing mark in the international human rights path, adding that the continued Israeli violations against the prisoners put the UN conventions on Human Rights to the test.
The network hailed the Palestinian prisoners’ high spirits despite the international unjustified silence and inaction regarding their issue.
The Oslo based network pointed to the usurped rights of Palestinian prisoners, led by prisoner Karim Younis who has served 31 years in occupation jails, and the Palestinian female prisoners’ dean Lena Jerboni, detained since 2002, in addition to 5000 other Palestinian prisoners held in poor condition in Israeli jails.
The network appreciated the prisoners’ hunger strike as a weapon to restore their rights, pointing to the Jerusalemite hunger striker Samer al-Issawi, who may die at any moment in light of the Israeli procrastination to meet his demands.
