The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has been denying the Palestinian captive Mohammad al-Arqan, 54, his right of family visitation for many years under alleged security pretexts.
The wife of the detainee told the PIC reporter that one of their children has not seen his father for 17 years. The rest of family members are allowed to see him via few and brief irregular visits.
Prisoner Arqan, from al-Khalil, has been held captive since 1995. He serves a life sentence and suffers chronic diseases and is currently held in Raymond jail.
