Issa Qaraqe, head of detainees and ex-detainees committee, disclosed that the Israeli government pays regular monthly salaries to prisoners and Israeli criminals who committed massacres and killings against Palestinian civilians, as well as providing social care and legal follow-up for their families.
“The Israeli government is paying a regular monthly salary to the Israeli murderer Ami Popper, who committed a bloody massacre and killed seven Palestinian workers on 20 May 1990 in Rishon Lezion area near Tel Aviv. All the martyrs were workers from the Gaza Strip; the criminal “Ami Popper executed them” while they were waiting for the arrival of their Israeli employers. He was wearing an Israeli uniform when he shot them.
Qaraqe pointed out that the terrorist Ami Popper, who was sentenced to life imprisonment, had his sentence reduced and will be released next month. He lives a luxury life inside his prison, as he got married and had children while in prison, and was allowed several times to visit his home.
Qaraqe said that the Israeli government gives funds to the Jewish terrorists and their extremist organizations; it helps them financially, socially and legally through associations authorized by the Israeli government, such as the “Hanino Association” and the “Right Hand Association” and others.
