‘Abla Sa’adat, the wife of the detained Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was allowed to visit her husband Sunday, for the first time after three years of solitary confinement.Abla stated that her husband has high morale despite the suffering and the hunger strikes he has undergone.
Sa’adat was recently released from solitary confinement after the latest hunger strike conducted by over 2,000 detainees demanding their legitimate rights guaranteed by International Law, including their right to family visits.
His wife said that Sa’adat’s body is weak, with a declining health condition, but added that he is filled with determination and pride.
The PFLP secretary general has been on hunger strike twice over the last three years; once for 22 days, and in the most recent strike, along with thousands of other detainees, for 28 days.
