News Dozens March for Thousands of Palestinian Prisoners Held by Israel
Dozens of Palestinians staged a protest on Monday in front of headquarters of International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Gaza City to show support for Palestinian prisoners languishing in Israeli jails.
Holding pictures of their sons, the families of prisoners were raising banners demanding international human rights organizations action for their release from Israeli prisons. “We came today to affirm our solidarity with our children in Israeli prisons and to demand their life conditions be improved,” said Ferial al-Zaanin, the mother of the prisoner Hossam. “Hossam was injured and still ill, he suffers from poor health conditions, and the healthcare inside the [Israeli] prisons is almost non-existed,” Al-Zaanin told Anadolu Agency. The prisoner’s mother went on to lament “we call on the specialized authorities to intervene immediately and to stand by the side of our prisoners.”
