Gazans Protest Cuts in Prisoner ‘Salaries’
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has seemingly cut or reduced the “salaries” of some terrorist prisoners — those from Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
There was a protest yesterday in Gaza by the Mujahat al-Quds and the Department of Women’s Action for the Islamic Jihad movement, objecting to the cuts in prisoner salaries by the Palestinian Authority.
The protesters held banners saying, “The prisoner’s salary is a right, not a gift”; “Give our prisoners their rights, don’t starve the sons of the prisoners in Israeli jails”; and “Shouldn’t you reward my father who sacrificed his freedom for his homeland?”
The protesters called on the PA to reconsider the allocation of prisoners’ allowances as a basic and legitimate right for them and their families. It insisted that the PA not base their decisions on political differences.
It seems that the PA made these cuts in order to further punish Hamas and other Gaza terror groups, but also to show the West that it doesn’t support all terrorist salaries. Only the ones for the terrorists on their side.
