DFLP: Int'l community should take it responsibility towards the situation of Palestinian prisoners

The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) has issued a statement in junction with Prisoners' Day this week. A translated excerpt (sketchy translation by GPF Blog);
"We appeal to the human rights NGOs around the world, which raise the banner of humanity, the principles of human rights and international human rights conventions, and we call on the UN Security Council to act immediately to stop the Israeli racist attacks on the prisoners, and to force the Israeli government to back down on the arbitrary decisions taken by them, including the recently decisions on deportation of six prisoners who have completed their "period of their sentences", and to force the Israeli government to abide by the rules of the trial of prisoners of war set forth in the Geneva Convention, and work to improve the conditions of their health and living, providing for the release of all of them without restriction or discrimination."
