Notable Quotes
On his side, Mr. Majed Abu Shammala, Secretary General of the Palestinian Prisoners Society, praised Abu Motlaq's efforts in defending the cause of the Palestinian prisoners, and his continuous efforts to provide better living conditions for them inside their prisons and detention centers.
Abu Shammala called on the new Palestinian cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) not to commit to any security promises nor implement the Roadmap until signs of mutual trust and facilities have been shown by the Israeli government, represented mainly in the release of Palestinian prisoners, and lifting the embargos and closures on the Palestinian territories.
In addition, Mr. Abu Shammala called also on the Palestinian people to adhere to the cause of the Palestinian prisoners, and work together in harmony to join the campaign to release the Palestinian prisoners, who spent many years in the occupation prisons.
