Dimitri Diliani, member of Fatah's Revolutionary Council, stated that his movement supports the hunger strike waged by the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. He added that Fatah will continue to seek the implementation of the prisoners' demands and improvement of their living conditions.
Diliani criticized the "barbaric" crackdown exercised by the Israel Prison Authorities against Palestinian prisoners.
In a press statement issued on Tuesday, April 24, Diliani condemned the "suppressive, inhumane practices exercised by Netanyahu's government against detainees." He said that the Israeli authorities had carried out a number of repressive measures against the prisoners on hunger strike. They include; isolating striking prisoners, transferring them to other prisons, depriving them of visits by family members, searching their cells and seizing their belongings, and depriving them of vital medical care.
Diliani affirmed Fatah's keenness to maintain the resistance activities inside Israeli prisons where Palestinians are detained; such activities include the open-ended hunger strike that prisoners are currently waging.
