UN Special Rapporteur on the Occupied Palestinian Territories Francesca Albanese said that the Israeli entity is exploiting the prisoners' issue to legitimize the killing, wounding, mutilation, starvation, and trauma of Palestinians in Gaza, and is intensifying acts of violence in the rest of the occupied territories.
Albanese added on the X platform that the Israeli entity could have released the prisoners eight months ago when the first ceasefire and prisoner exchange was proposed. However, the Israeli entity refused to continue destroying Gaza and the Palestinians as a people.
On Saturday, the occupation forces committed a massacre in the Nuseirat camp, resulting in the death of 210 citizens and the injury of more than 400 others, under the pretext of liberating four Israeli prisoners.
The Israeli occupation forces have continued their aggression against Gaza by land, sea, and air since Oct. 7, 2023, resulting in the martyrdom of 36,801 citizens, the majority of whom were children and women, and the injury of 83,680 others, while thousands of victims remain under rubble and on the roads.
