Khatib warns of plotting to kill Sheikh Salah in prison
RAMALLAH, Sheikh Kamal Al-Khatib, the deputy leader of the Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, has warned of an Israeli plot to kill Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the movement, while serving a jail sentence.
Khatib in a press statement on Wednesday said that there is a danger on Sheikh Salah’s life from Jewish homicide convicts in the Ayalon prison where he is incarcerated.
He recalled that Sheikh Salah was the target of a failed attempt on his life while boarding the Freedom Flotilla late last May at the hands of the Israeli forces and the scenario might recur while in jail, charging the Shabak with inciting against him.
Khatib described the five-month sentence against Sheikh Salah as “oppressive” because the Sheikh was defending himself against the Israeli police attacks at Bab Al-Maghareba.
