(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Gaza premier has called for sending an international fact-finding committee to probe conditions of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails.
Haneyya said during a visit to the sit-in tent pitched in Gaza city in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strikers that the world community must swiftly act and demand the release of those prisoners.
He said that his government is in constant contact with the Egyptian authorities to follow up on what was agreed upon in the Egyptian-supervised prisoners exchange deal between Hamas and Israel. The deal stipulated among other things an end to solitary confinement of Palestinian prisoners, a major demand for the hunger strikers.
Haneyya asked the Arab League to work for the convening of an extraordinary session for the UN General Assembly to discuss the issue of Palestinian prisoners.
