The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said Sunday it holds Israel responsible for the life of the group’s imprisoned leader, Ahmad Saadat, who was transferred to hospital after joining a mass hunger-strike in Israeli jails.
PFLP called for support to the 2,000 or so prisoners who are refusing food to protest their conditions, in particular the policy of solitary confinement.
Ahmad Saadat has been held in isolation for three years.
Sa’adat was convicted by an Israeli military court in 2008 of responsibility for the assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Ze’evi (“Gandhi”), on October 17, 2001.
