Families of Palestinian women imprisoned by Abbas"s militia appealed to the Egyptian President, Husni Mubarak, and the Saudi Monarch, King Abdullah, to intervene to get their daughters released.

The families said that Abbas"s militia repeatedly summon sisters of martyrs and captive in Israeli jails and tie them up hands and feet in a torture method called (shabeh) for a number of hours and sometimes days in the summer heat.


Shabeh is a torture method used by
the Israeli occupation and Abbas"s forces


The affected families said that the behaviour of Abbas"s militia contradicts all customs and norms and women should not be subjected to such treatment at the pretext that they resist an occupation which should be resisted by all means available.

The families expressed their confidence that the Saudi King and the Egyptian President will pressure the Ramallah authority to release the women and to stop all forms of political detention, so that the inter-Palestinian dialogue in Cairo may succeed and unity may prevail in the Palestinian street.
