Gazan families visit detained relatives in Nafha jail

A number of Palestinian families on Monday morning left the Gaza Strip to visit their relatives imprisoned in Israel’s Nafha jail in the Negev.

Spokeswoman for the International Committee of the Red Cross, Suheir Zaqqout, told the PIC that 27 Gazans, including children, headed aboard buses for the Nafha prison to visit 18 prisoners.

Palestinian detainees are held under harsh conditions in Israeli jails which have no protection means against heavy rains and cold temperatures, and lack sufficient winter clothing and blankets.

The Israeli occupation authorities further refuse to allow the Gazan families of Hamas-affiliated prisoners to visit their relatives in Israeli jails.
