Yisrael Hasson: Watch Prisoner Issues Closely

Member of Knesset Yisrael Hasson (Kadima) said, Tuesday, that Israel has to take a close look at how it deals with Arab security prisoners in the wake of the deal announced, Monday evening, to end a hunger strike that lasted more than two months, in many cases.

The Damascus-born Hasson said there is no more sensitive issue in the Palestinian Authority, except, perhaps for land. He said the importance of dialogue should be considered in order to minimize unrest among Palestinian Authority Arabs and elsewhere in the world.
