Hamas calls for mass participation in Friday rally in solidarity with al-Qeiq
Hamas has launched calls for mass participation in a rally set to be staged Friday in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger-striker Muhammad al-Qeiq and in support for the anti-occupation uprising.
The solidarity rally is set to kick off after noon prayers from al-Haras Mosque in support for prisoner al-Qeiq, whose hunger strike has entered its 65th day.
A rally was, meanwhile, held in Nablus on Thursday by the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) and the Prisoners’ Committee, among other human rights institutions, in solidarity with al-Qeiq.
Ex-hunger-striking detainee Muhammad Allan said al-Qeiq is on the verge of death as his health status has entered a critical downturn.
Allan called on the Palestinian Authority and the international human rights bodies to urgently step in and urge the Israeli occupation to release al-Qeiq before it is too late.
Allan further called on the Palestinian resistance in Gaza to exert pressure on the Israeli occupation and hold it responsible for al-Qeiq’s life.
Head of the PPS in Nablus, Raed Amer, also said that the Israeli occupation authorities have been dragging their feet over al-Qeiq’s case despite his very critical health status.
