Betreff: [ISM Updates] Action Alert: Jericho prison under violent siege
Datum: Tue, 14 Mar 2006 13:15:19 -0000

 

At this moment, large numbers of Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have invaded Jericho and are surrounding the prison and governmental compound of the Palestinian Authority (PA) with tanks, jeeps and Apache helicopters. They are demanding the surrender of six members of the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) who are imprisoned for the assassination of Israeli minister of Tourism Rehavam Zeevi in 2001. One of the prisoners is Ahmad Sa'adaat, the secretary-general of the PFLP.

One Palestinian prison guard and a prisoner from the Al-Aqsa Martyr Brigades have already been killed in the siege and eight other prisoners are wounded. The IOF is not allowing the injured people or bodies to be evacuated from the prison. Ahmad Saadat stated in a telephone interview with Al Jazeera tv that he will not leave the prison voluntarily and will fight the IOF that will try to take him by force.

British and American monitors left the prison in advance of the Israeli invasion. Their presence is an integral part of the agreement between the PA and the Israeli government on the protection of the five PFLP members. The abandonment of the prisoners points to cooperation of the US and UK governments with the Israelis in this invasion.

Protest this opportunistic violent crime by calling the Israeli Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv and the representatives of the American and British governments. Demand the end of the invasion and respect for signed treaties.

[After the Hebrew follows what YOU can do]

 

Election provocation in Jericho to exacerbate the conflict.

 

Gush Shalom Press release, March 14, 2006

  At this moment in Jericho, the main elections gimmick of the Kadima Party and its  leader Ehud Olmert is taking place with hundreds of Israeli soldiers and Palestinian prisoners drafted to serve as extras. This gimmick, designed to draw extreme right votes in the March 28 elections, shows Kadima as an adventurist and irresponsible party in whose hands it is dangerous to entrust the helm of state” says Gush Shalom (The Israeli Peace Bloc).
  In cooperation with the governments of the US and Britain, whose removal of their observers from the Jericho Prison proves them utterly incapable of any mediation role between Israelis and Palestinians, PM Olmert and Defence Minister  Mofaz are carrying out a provocation which will only exacerbate the conflict and hatred. Theirs will be the full responsibility for bloodshed of Israelis and Palestinians, in the course of the Jericho provocation itself and in the cycle of retaliation upon retaliation which may follow.
It should be noted that the people which the army was sent to Jericho  to capture or kill are marked out because, when taking revenge for the targeted killing of their own leader, they did not kill innocent civilians. They selected Rehav’am Ze’evi, a general turned politician who was the foremost of Israeli racists and who built a political career upon crude hate propaganda. A targeted killing…”

background

At this moment, large numbers of Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have
invaded Jericho and are surrounding the prison and governmental
compound of the Palestinian Authority (PA) with tanks, jeeps and Apache
helicopters. They are demanding the surrender of six members of the
PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) who are imprisoned
for the assassination of Israeli minister of Tourism Rehavam Zeevi in
2001. One of the prisoners is Ahmad Sa'adaat, the secretary-general
of the PFLP.

One Palestinian prison guard and a prisoner from the Al-Aqsa Martyr
Brigades have already been killed in the siege and eight other
prisoners are wounded. The IOF is not allowing the injured people or
bodies to be evacuated from the prison. Ahmad Saadat stated in a
telephone interview with Al Jazeera tv that he will not leave the
prison voluntarily and will fight the IOF that will try to take him by
force.

British and American monitors left the prison in advance of the Israeli
invasion. Their presence is an integral part of the agreement between
the PA and the Israeli government on the protection of the five PFLP
members. The abandonment of the prisoners points to cooperation of the
US and UK governments with the Israelis in this invasion
