Latest Zionist crime: forcing prisoners to wear orange uniforms

Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades is up in arms over the latest Zionist crime. From their English website:
Palestinian captives in the Zionist Hadarim prison asserted that they won't wear the orange uniform, which the Zionist prison authority tries to impose on them, urging Palestinian masses to support them in this regard.

Lawyer Buthaina Dakmak of the Mandela foundation that caters from Palestinian captives in Zionist jails met Palestinian MP Ahmad Sa'adat, the secretary-general of the PFLP, and Tawfeek Abu Na'im, one of Hamas's political leaders in the Hadarem jail, adding that both Palestinian leaders highlighted the importance of the Palestinian popular support in this regard.

She also quoted the two leaders as asserting that four of the Palestinian detainees were sent by the IPA to the isolation cells for rejecting to wear the orange uniform. She said that the four prisoners were denied their simplest human rights and that they were completely isolated.

The two Palestinian leaders, according to Dakmak, accused the IPA of attempting to deceive the captives by bringing new captives to the said jail, and then convincing them to wear the orange uniform in a bid to persuade other captives to accept it.

Palestinian captives were determined not to bow to the IPA pressures to wear the orange uniform, underlining that the orange uniform was fit for criminals, underscoring that they aren’t criminals but rather they are, as the entire world know, political prisoners and freedom fighters.

The captives also confirmed that the orange uniform bears reflectors that could turn them into a target for the Zionist soldiers, even in the darkness.
Somehow, I think if Israeli soldiers wanted to shoot them in prison, they could manage quite nicely without the help of reflective orange clothing.
