PFLP supporters to mark anniversary of captured leader

Bethlehem – Ma'an – The Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa'adat will hold a rally on 13 March, marking the 4th aniversary of the day the Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine was abducted from a Palestinian Authority prison by Israeli soldiers, the group said.

The commemoration ceremony will be held in Ramallah, the group said, at 3pm, and protest the Israeli move to detain Sa'adat from prison in Jericho, where he was serving a sentence from a Palestinian Authority court.

On Tuesday, the group said, the Israeli prison service transferred Sa'adat to a new isolation cell, and condemned the move.

The Campaign said the party leader was moved from an isolation cell in the Eshel Prison to a new solitary cell in the Ohalei Kedar Detention Center.
