Hundreds of Palestinians today took part in sit-ins held in front of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) premises across multiple West Bank cities, in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Participants in the sit-ins – which were organized by Palestinian national and Islamic factions and various institutions involved in prisoners’ affairs – called on ICRC to promptly intervene and provide protection to Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons, particularly the six prisoner escapees, who were subjected to severe torture after they were recaptured by Israel.

Protesters called on international institutions to pressure Israel to end its policy of administrative detention, and to work attentively to save the lives of sick and hunger-striking prisoners in Israeli jails, according to WAFA.

The Israel Prison Services IPS waged a war against all the prisoners following news of the escape of the six prisoners, raiding and attacking them in their cells, moving them to other prisons, separating them, isolating some, and denying them certain rights, including family visits and buying from the canteen.

  1. –The ICRC should of course have been and, I hope is taking, strong and urgent action on its own initiative to head off the inevitable torture regime resulting from the daring and embarrassing 6-person escape from “hell” and knowing of the Zionists’ ad infinitum vicious and vindictive nature.

    –I hope Palestinian Christian individuals and organizations took part in these sit-ins, identifying themselves as Christians.

    –What is Abbas’/Fatah’s position in this matrix of horror-hell?

    –I can only think that Hamas is doing whatever it can to publicize their people’s torment and to denounce the myriad, endless evils of Zionism in the realms of incarceration and the overall demonic structure of the Zionists’ illegal occupation (with persecution and apartheid ever-present realities) of Palestine.

    –“The Israel Prison Services IPS waged a war….” That’s what the satanic/demonic Zionists do best: wage war on the defenseless, the occupied, the oppressed, the humiliated–anyone not “chosen”….
