GAZA, June 2 (KUNA) -- Jordanian prisoners in Israeli jails, on hunger
strike for more than a month now, called on the Jordanian people to act
immediately to support them.
Letters were smuggled from Al-Ramla Prison in Israel all the way to Jordan,
and later read out and broadcast by local radios on Sunday. The prisoners
said, "the hunger strike entered its second month," and no show of support is
to be seen for their battle.
They described their letters as "the last living will of martyrs of
dignity", and accused Israel of working to isolate and punish them and force
them to give up their latest show of resistance."
The hunger strike of Jordanian prisoners was meant to demand an immediate
release from Israeli jails, and a transfer of said captives to jails in their
home country according to the Wadi Araba Treaty signed by Israel and Jordan.
