Mahmoud Sarsak, den palestinske fotbollsspelare som fängslades olagligt av Israel i 3 år, frigavs idag efter en 94 dagar lång hungerstrejk. Han hyllades när han idag återvände till Gaza.
New report by Israeli and Palestinian human rights NGOs shows that Israel is not meeting the conditions to which it agreed in a deal to end the massive hunger strike. Three Palestinians are still on strike, one in mortal danger.
- No end to solitary confinement
- Administrative detention: business as usual
When are we going to learn that the word Israelis is worth less than trash? How many more times they need to cheat on us so we wake up?
