GAZA, Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), on Wednesday called on the international community to develop a systematic plan to activate and internationalize the issue of Palestinian lawmakers imprisoned in Israeli jails.
Dr. Bahar stated that the international community must pay more attention to the just cause of the kidnapped lawmakers in light of Israel’s persistence in flouting the international law and all democratic values and norms.
The deputy speaker also urged the inter-parliamentary union (IPU) to organize an urgent visit to the post-war besieged Gaza Strip to see closely the suffering of its people.
He affirmed that the living conditions faced daily by Gaza people became harsher than what many people can imagine and the humanitarian situation turned more than ever in dire need for international parliamentary efforts that could make pressures on all levels.
