Islam Times: Al-Sinwar in an interview with Islam Times correspondent in Gaza stressed that “The issue of the Palestinian prisoners, especially those who are serving long-term prison sentences, will remain the priorities of the Palestinian resistance, especially al-Qassam Brigades”.
Al-Sinwar warmly thanked all the Palestinian factions that participated in the operation that led to Shalit’s capture, and praised the resistance’s loyalty to the hero prisoners.
It is noteworthy that al-Sinwar is one of the most prominent Hamas leaders and one of the founders of the Security Service, known as “Majd” (the glory). He was born in Khan Yunis, 1962, and is one of the founders of the Islamic bloc in the Islamic University.
Previously, al-Sinwar was arrested several times, and in 1988 he was detained under an administrative detention after the occupation failed to obtain any information from him about the nature of his work.
