Development of the Captives Culture in Zionist Prisons ... "The Liberated Syrian Captive Sedqi al-Maqt is a Model."

"The total number of those who entered the Zionist prisons and jails since the Nakba until the end of June 2020 exceeded one million male and female , therefore, talking about the march of struggle and resistance of prisoners and detainees in Zionist prisons is not an easy matter." By these words, the researcher Majed Diab begins his lecture, entitled “Development of the Prisoners' Awareness and Culture in Zionist Prisons… The Liberated Prisoner Sedqi al-Maqt as a Model,” which he gave in the Sami al-Droubi hall in the Cultural Center in Homs.

Diab indicated that the number of prisoners and detainees today in the Israeli prisons is 5500 prisoners distributed over 27 prisons, including 200 children, 49 women, and 700 patients pointing that the number of detainees who were martyred in Zionist prisons and jails reached 224 as a result of gunfire, torture or deliberate medical negligence.

The researcher made it clear that the development of the prisoners' culture inside Israeli prisons contributed to keeping the prisoners in a state of permanent struggle , as this development resulted in what is known as the "Prisoners' Document", which expresses the "National Accord Document" in 2006, as they had a prominent role in the freedom and independence uprising which erupted in (1987-1993) .

"The culture of prisoners also contributed to the registration of the longest hunger strike in the world when prisoner Samer Al-Issawi continued his hunger strike for 287 days, in addition to the fact that this culture raised the percentage of those who returned to the struggle after their liberation from captivity to the highest rates in the world," Diab added.
