Middle East (IP)-One of the leaders of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) stated that the Israelis are playing with fire, and the occupiers have intensified the persecution of Palestinian detainees in prisons.

Iran PressMiddle East: About 4,500 Palestinians are being held in Israeli jails. The inhumane conditions and torture of Palestinian prisoners by the Israelis have led to numerous Palestinian demonstrations in support of the prisoners, as well as frequent hunger strikes by Palestinian prisoners.

"We are watching the situation of the Palestinian prisoners and we will never leave them alone," Hamas leader Hussein Abu Kwik said.

Hamas's warning comes hours after dozens of Palestinians were injured in clashes in Hebron on Wednesday.
