Abbas: Dream of prisoners' release will be realized

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived at the tent set up in al-Bira, north of Jerusalem, in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners held by Israel.


"The dream to release all the Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails will be realized just like the dream of a state was realized," he said, and called on Israel to recognize agreements he claimed wee signed years ago with former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert regarding the release of Palestinian prisoners.
