Dr. Aziz Dweik, the kidnapped speaker of the PLC, stated that the imprisoned MPs have to be released, as a demand related to the Palestinian sovereignty, but not at the expense of prisoners of high sentences, hailing the Hamas political leadership"s position towards the suggestion tabled by the former US president in this regard.

"We believe that any prisoners" exchange deal with the occupation must include our fellow prisoners of high sentences and all national and Islamic factions and must not be confined to the release of the Palestinian MPs and the few other humanitarian cases," Dr. Dweik stated in a statement leaked from the Megiddo prison.

The speaker added: "We are paying the price for our political positions and we have to be released, but all Palestinian captives are prisoners of freedom and the national struggle and are detained on the background of their resistance against the illegal occupation, so their release must be a national demand of all factions, political forces and Palestinian leaders."
