BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – The Arab League is scheduled to hold an emergency meeting Wednesday to address the situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, with special focus on sick prisoners, an official said Sunday.

PA minister of prisoners’ affairs Issa Qaraqe told Ma’an that representatives of Arab countries and members of the Arab League would try to agree on a formula about Palestinian prisoners to be submitted to UN organizations so as to give momentum to their plight.

The Palestinian prisoners’ plight, added Qaraqe, will be taken to the UN Security Council “because it is responsible for the protection of humans and so it should protect prisoners.”

Asked about the last group of pre-Oslo prisoners to be freed from Israeli jails, Qaraqe said the deal would be made as scheduled without any obstacles.

The Arab League came out of its hiding place just for its chance to stick it to Israel. Over 100,000 Arabs dead in Syria but the Arab League says nothing but gives lip service.
