MK Jamal Zahalka (Balad) is trying to internationalize the Palestinian-Israeli conflict by seeking help from the UN and other countries with regards to the release of four Palestinian prisoners on a hunger strike in Israeli jails, he told The Jerusalem Post this week.

Zahalka has written a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Kimoon.

Last week he sent a letter to Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi via the Egyptian Embassy in Israel.
