Palestinians strike in support of prisoners' protest

After all, a Gaza woman entering Israel for cancer treatment at an Israeli hospital was caught last week carrying explosives to be delivered to Hamas in Israel - imagine what the family of a prisoner would be willing to carry.

Israeli authorities deal with the PA on electrical and fuel supplies for Gaza because Israel does not engage with Hamas, which it regards as a terrorist organization. "They are living in inhumane conditions", said Hassana Aldramly, an official at the Palestinian embassy in SA.

It was the "minimum that we can do for our prisoners", he said. He has plenty of political aspirations, even from prison, and has been touted as a successor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"It represents a development in Hamas' political ideology", said Mr al-Haya. "Hamas should relinquish control of Gaza".

Earlier this month, Abbas announced plans to take "unprecedented steps" in regards to the Gaza Strip, which has been governed by Hamas since 2007.

"During summer and winter peaks the scarce electricity supply is increasingly rationed to four hours during daytime", the report quotes the bank's West Bank and Gaza director Marina Wes as saying.

They say some 620 kidney patients in need of dialysis three times a week and newborns are at particular risk from blackouts, with generators at all the medical facilities using a total of some 2,000 liters of fuel per hour.

He said: "Gaza is an explosive barrel and he can not press this barrel more".

And they intend to stop paying for other necessities too.

"After God, the country (Gaza) depends on the salaries of the employees", said Fahd Abu Sultan, 28, a shoe salesman.

Once the PA stops paying for Gaza's electricity, Hamas will most likely need to turn to the global community and private pro-Palestinian individuals and ask for help.

"Let whoever wins rule", he said.

Sweidan's prediction of a gloomy situation for Hamas proved correct when supporters of the Islamic movement suffered a loss in the largest Palestinian university student council elections. "Today proves that, since 10 years, Gaza and the West Bank have united in one activity, today this has been achieved, which proves that the Palestinian people are united by struggle and resistance and are divided by politics".

The general strike was called by Fatah, the ruling party in the West Bank, on Sunday.

The report is to be presented at a May 4 meeting in Brussels of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee, which coordinates worldwide donor support for the Palestinians.
