The Palestinian National Council (PNC) mourned the captive prisoner Faris Baroud, who was martyred in Israeli prison because of the intentional medical negligence by the Israeli prisons authorities.

PNC pointed out that because of Israel's non-compliance with the provisions of Geneva Convention and the Additional Protocol thereto, which applies to Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli prisons, last year five prisoners joined the convoy of martyrs, they are: (Yasir Al-Saradih, Mohammad Anbar, Aziz Awaisat, Mohammad Marshoud, and Mohammad Zaghloul Al-Khatib) The number of martyrs of the Palestinian Prisoners Movement reached to 218 prisoners in Israeli prisons.

PNC holds the Israeli occupation government responsible for the lives of all prisoners and detainees in its prisons. Mr. Al-Za’anoon called on the high signatories’ parties of the Third Geneva Convention to act urgently to abide by Israel's provisions, especially in light of the repression and persecution of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli prisons.
