I will not break my strike until I gain my freedom
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC) - October 26, 2020

Prisoner Maher Al-Akhras affirmed on Sunday evening his determination to
continue his battle despite his deteriorating health until gaining his
freedom and his return to his family in Silat al-Dhahr town, south of Jenin.

Akhras, who has been on strike for 91 days, saluted from his place of
detention in the Israeli Kaplan hospital all those who declared solidarity
with him in the homeland and the world at large.

His mother and family were allowed to visit him on Sunday for the first
time since his arrest and the announcement of his open hunger strike. He
told Al-Quds newspaper, “My health condition is dangerous but my morals are
high. I will not break my strike under the occupation decisions and threats
… either my freedom or martyrdom.”

Akhras expressed his happiness that his mother, wife and children entered
his room and hugged him after being held for two days before allowing them
entry into his room.

He said, “I derive my will from our Palestinian people, and from the
families of prisoners and martyrs because we forcibly take our freedom from
the occupation and it will not break or defeat us. The stances of our
people everywhere with me are the best proof of that."

“At all stages, our people gave me morale. Thanks to all of our people for
standing with me because this issue is not my case but rather the issue of
every Palestinian who rejects humiliation, insult and occupation”, Akhras

Akhras, who was speaking with high spirits and his voice showed the extent
of his pain and fatigue, concluded his talk by thanking and greeting the
Palestinian people, the media and everyone who supported him. He also
lauded all the free people of the world who confirmed their standing on the
side of truth, justice and freedom.
