      Zionists to keep Palestinian POWs as "bargaining chips"

      Occupied Jerusalem: 5 July, 2003 (IAP News)

      The apartheid Israeli regime said Saturday it would keep thousands of
      interned
      Palestinian political prisoners and resistance activists as
      bargaining chips to
      extract concessions from the Palestinian Authority.

      The Israeli state-run radio quoted Zionist sources close to the "Prime
      Minister's Office" as saying that Israel wouldn't agree to release
      the bulk of
      Palestinian political prisoners.

      The sources said prisoners affiliated with the Islamic resistance
      groups, the
      Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and those who had
      killed or
      injured Israeli soldiers during the intifada wouldn't be freed would
      remain in
      Israeli custody.

      Israel currently holds up to 7000 Palestinian political and
      resistance activists
      in 13 Israeli detention camps throughout Palestine.

      Most of the detainees are civilians or suspected political activists.

      PA official Muhammed Dahlan is supposed to discuss the release of
      Palestinian
      POWs and other prisoners with Zionist official Shaul Mofaz Sunday.

      The Zionist regime said it would release some of the prisoners to
      strengthen the
      government of Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas.

      Palestinian resistance groups, including Hamas, Islamic Jihad and
      Fatah, put the
      release of Palestinian detainees at the top of their condition list
      when they
      agreed to observe a cease-fire for three months a week ago.
