Egypt on Monday condemned Israeli policies concerning Palestinian prisoners in light of the death of Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jadarat over the weekend, Kuwait News Agency KUNA reported.
In a press release, Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Amr warned that the continuation of Israeli policies will lead to an explosion of the situation in the region, according to the report.
KUNA cited Amr as saying he holds Israel responsible for any deterioration of the situation and called on the international community to take a firm stance against Israel's "inhuman practices against the Palestinian prisoners.”
