The European Alliance in Defense of Palestinian Detainees (EADPD) stated Wednesday that it urged some international and UN figures to put pressure on Israel so it responds to the Palestinian hunger-striking prisoners’ demands, reports Alray.
It stated in a press release that the EADPD contacted UN Secretary General Bani Ki-moon, EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, and several other international human rights organizations, urging them to exert immediate pressure on Israel to respond to the Palestinian hunger-striking prisoners’ legitimate demands and release prisoners from Israeli prisons.
According to Alray, the EADPD called upon all peace-loving countries, human rights organizations and international public opinion to stand with justice, expose the Israeli racial policy against the Palestinian people, and to help release prisoners from Israeli prisons.
It further called upon the Palestinian national factions to unite their efforts to defend prisoners and launch an international campaign to oblige Israel to release them.
