Fourty Palestinian citizens from the Gaza Strip went on Tuesday morning to visit 24 Palestinian prisoners held in the Israeli Nafha prison.
According to the International Committee of the Red Cross, 40 members of the families of the Palestinian prisoners took Red Cross buses leaving the Gaza Strip through the Beit Hanoun “Erez” crossing to visit their loved ones who are imprisoned in the Nafha Desert Prison.
The families visits coincide with a permanent weekly sit-in held by the prisoners’ families in front of the headquarters of the Red Cross in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, to demand the freedom of their sons and daughters.
Up to 4400 Palestinians are held now inside the Israeli prisons, including about 400 prisoners from Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation authorities continue to deprive Hamas prisoners of receiving their families visits.
