"Bethlehem - Ma'an - The imprisoned leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Ahmad Sa'adat, has urged the captors of the Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, to stick to their demands to release all long-term Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.
Sa'adat, who is also a Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member, said,
"The captors of the Israeli soldier should stick to this demand, and call for the release of the Palestinian prisoners from Jerusalem, the Arab prisoners, and the prisoners from the 1948 lands."
On Wednesday, the Israeli military court at Ofer decided to extend Sa'adat's detention until the beginning of May."
