Palestine, May 9, 2023: On Monday Israeli Prison Services (IPS) suddenly transferred political prisoner Ahmad Sa’adat, Secretary-General of the Marxist-Leninist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), to solitary confinement, Israeli media reported.
According to Walla news website, the IPS did not disclose the reasons behind moving Sa’adat to solitary confinement.
However, this move came one day after the Israeli internal security agency, Shin Bet, had announced the detention of six PFLP cadres who allegedly were planning attacks against Israeli targets in the occupied West Bank.
Shin Bet claimed that the alleged planned attacks were directed by PFLP leaders outside and inside Israeli prisons.
Meanwhile, Sa’adat secretly gave an interview to an Algerian newspaper, in which he warned of a potential “third intifada.”
For its part, the PFLP said that two of its imprisoned cadres had been transferred from their cells without any apparent reason: Ahed Abu Ghoulmeh and Walid Hanatsheh.
