Hamas urges Algeria to adopt Palestinian prisoners’ issue – Middle East Monitor
The head of the Hamas political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, yesterday asked the Algerian parliament to accept the issue of Palestinian prisoners who are being held in Israeli prisons.
His comments came during his meeting with the Speaker of the Algerian Parliament, Ibrahim Boughali, where they discussed the latest developments on the Palestinian issue.
Hamas sources said Anadolu Agency that Haniyeh had warned of what he described as “exploding conditions within Israeli prisoners.” He also mentioned Israel’s recent plans “to control Al-Aqsa Mosque, the expansion of settlements in the West Bank, and its ongoing siege of the occupied Gaza Strip.”
Haniyeh expressed to Hamas “gratitude for Algeria’s position and its efforts to support the Palestinian cause.” He also emphasized the need to implement the “Algeria Agreement”.
On October 13, the Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas, signed an agreement to end a year-long divide between the two parties.
Boughali said the Palestinian cause was at a “tipping point”, adding that the rise of resistance in the West Bank was a positive variable.
“Our only hope is the unity of the Palestinian people, and we have the opportunity to realize all their rights,” Boughali noted.
