Sharing is caring!

The African Union’s Pan African Parliament on Tuesday issued a declaration in support of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike at Israeli prisons and slammed Israel’s controversial detention policies.

The pro-Palestinian motion was presented at the parliament’s headquarters in Midrand, Johannesburg by Faysal Tebbini, a Tunisia representative to the Pan African Parliament, who urged legislators to pile pressure on Israel and force it to abide by international laws regarding treatment of prisoners.

The motion received overwhelming support from legislators with a number of them condemning Israel’s settlements policy, arbitrary arrests and the treatment of prisoners.
