The Islamic Jihad Movement stated Saturday that the Palestinian dialog would not culminate with success as long as the PA in Ramallah is persistent in its political arrest policy against the Palestinian resistance.
Spokesman for Islamic Jihad Dawoud Shihab said, in a statement to Quds Press, that the political arrests come within the framework of the PA security coordination with the Israeli occupation authority and thus have nothing to do with the internal division.
“There is a policy to eradicate the resistance in the West Bank and there is a crazy war waged by the security apparatuses against Islamic Jihad cadres and leaders,” spokesman Shihab affirmed.
He stressed that the release of prisoners from PA jails must not be motivated by political reasons, but there should be a general policy rejecting the political detention under any pretext.
The spokesman highlighted that the Palestinian people are in a state of national liberation and have the right to resist the occupation and defend themselves against its aggression.
