AL asks UN to hold session on Palestinian prisoners

The Arab League decided to ask the UN general assembly to convene a special session to discuss the issue of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

This came in an extraordinary meeting held Sunday by the Arab League at the level of permanent representatives who listened to a report about the inhumane practices and violations which the prisoners and hunger strikers are exposed to in Israeli jails.

The Arab League also called on the UN in its report to invite the international human rights council in Geneva to table this issue in its session to be held next June and make a resolution forcing the Israeli occupation state to comply with the fourth Geneva convention and open its jails before international probe committees.

The Arab League also decided to form a committee composed of members from Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait and other Arab countries to prepare for an international conference addressing the issue of Palestinian prisoners.

The Arab League recommended the launch of a political and media campaign at the international level to introduce this issue.

It finally called on the UN high commission for human rights, the human rights council, the committee against torture and the Red Cross in Geneva to intensify their contacts with the Israeli government to put an end to the serious violations against the Palestinian prisoners in its jails and organize regular visits to the Israeli prisons.
