Fight Back News Service is circulating the following June 4 statement from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)

PFLP salutes freed leader, Comrade Khalida Jarrar

The Popular Front for the Liberation salutes Comrade Khalida Jarrar on her liberation from the prisons of the occupation. She has achieved a victory over the Zionist jailer with will, steadfastness and defiance of the occupation, said the Front.

Jarrar, a legislator and lifelong struggler for the freedom of her people and the land of Palestine, was imprisoned in occupation prisons for the past 14 months since her arrest on April 1. She has been a leader inside prison and emerged from Jubara checkpoint calling for action to free Palestinian prisoners, saying that her joy at liberation was mixed with pain on leaving behind her fellow imprisoned women, including minor girls and the longest-serving woman prisoner, Lena Jarbouni.

The crowd awaiting her release chanted for Jarrar, for the prisoners, for the PFLP and for the freedom of Palestine. Imprisoned PFLP General Secretary Comrade Ahmad Sa’adat and the PFLP’s prison branch called for broad public participation in the struggle to free Palestinian prisoners and liberate Palestine.

Salutes to freed Comrade Khalida Jarrar! Freedom for all Palestinian Prisoners!
