Jordanian prisoners in Israel send urgent plea for support

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.
