Hamas captives condemn Abbas's militia for kidnapping freed captives

[ 17/07/2009 - 12:07 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas captives, in Israeli jails, condemned the continued campaign by Abbas's militia against Palestinian resistance activists and in particular the kidnapping of Palestinian captives who have just been freed from Israeli jails.

The captives said in a statement, smuggled out of Israeli jails, that Abbas's security agencies continue unabated with their campaign of detention, torture and murder of Hamas's freedom fighters, activists and supporters.

The captives also said in their statement that it was indeed regrettable that those agencies wait for Hamas captives who are freed from Israeli jails on roadblocks to kidnap them before they reach their homes and families citing the case of Iyad Habib from Bethlehem, who was released from Israeli jails after spending two years in administrative detention to be kidnapped by Abbas's security before he reaches his home.

Habib was kidnapped by Abbas's militia as soon as he crossed the Daherya roadblock, even before he could say hello to his wife and little daughter who were waiting for him at the roadblock.

The captives stressed that such behaviour is alien to Palestinian society and held Abbas's security agencies responsible for the life of political detainees in their jails.

They also called on Palestinian factions to end their silence towards these crimes and to raise their voices against the targeting of resistance fighters by Abbas's forces.
