55 Gazans visit relatives in Israeli jails on 2nd day of Eid

Visit 55 Gazans with Eid

A new batch of Gazan families visited their relatives in Israeli jails on Monday, Red Cross spokeswoman Suhir Zaqout said.

55 Gazans, including seven children below 14-years-old, visited 36 prisoners in the Israeli Nafha jail.

Palestinian families from Gaza are often denied by the Israeli occupation authorities the right to prison visits, scheduled for Monday every week.

370 Palestinians from the blockaded Gaza Strip are held in Israeli jails. Most of them are serving long sentences.

The number of Palestinians locked up in Israeli prisons has hit 6,500, among whom 29 Palestinians jailed since 1993, 12 MPs, 35 women, 14 minor girls, and 500 administrative detainees.
