The leader of the Hamas movement outside the occupied territories expressed his condolences over the martyrdom of Nizar Banat, the wife of a Palestinian activist who was martyred by the West Bank security service.
According to News i, quoting the Arab website 21, Khaled Mashaal, the leader of the Hamas movement outside the occupied territories, said in a telephone conversation with Nizar Banat’s wife: “Our hearts are filled with the heinous crime committed against him (Nizar Banat).” It is torn to pieces, but we are proud of his courage and originality.
Ismail Haniyeh, head of the political bureau of the Hamas Islamic Resistance Movement, recently spoke by telephone with Umm Kafah, the wife of the militant martyr Nizar Banat, and congratulated him on behalf of the Palestinian people and Hamas on his martyrdom.
Haniyeh said that the assassination of Nizar Banat illustrated the aggression of all Palestinian national forces and freedmen, and endorsed the resistance policy.
Meanwhile, 11 political prisoners from the village of Orif in the Palestinian Authority prisons went on a hunger strike.
The detainees’ family members stated that they had suffered from poor prison conditions since their detention and had been beaten and pressured to deny that they had been tortured.
The political arrests in Orif took place at the beginning of the “Sword of Quds” battle in Gaza against the Zionist regime, and the people of this region demonstrated in support of the Qassam Brigades.
One of the detainees, Yassin Shehadeh, has been released along with 20 other youths from the town in Jericho Prison since the beginning of the Battle of the Sword.
Yassin Shehadeh lost the ability to defecate due to torture and lost 20 kg.
On the other hand, the Palestinian Authority Court in Nablus detained Mohammed al-Kouni, a released prisoner, for four days, despite his poor health and the need for immediate action.
He has been on a hunger strike for five days to protest his detention in Palestinian Authority prisons.
In recent years, torture in Palestinian Authority prisons has resulted in the martyrdom of 15 Palestinians, including Majd al-Barghouti and Ahmad Hallawi.
