Arab League Calls on International Community to Support Striking Prisoners

CAIRO, February 17, 2013 (WAFA) – Arab League Secretary General Nabil al-Arabi Sunday called on the international community to hold responsibility regarding the striking prisoners whose prolonged hunger strike is endangering their lives.

An Arab League statement stated that al-Arbi addressed the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and United Nations human right chief, Navi Pillay, to intervene to free striking prisoner Samer Issawi and all the other prisoners.

Al-Arabi condemned the international community and its bodies’ unjustified silence regarding the injustice the Palestinian prisoners are being subjected to by Israel.
