AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Relatives of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails have expressed surprise at the visit by German President Christian Wulff to the tent pitched by family of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in occupied Jerusalem.

The relatives said they were dismayed at the fact that Wulff did not visit even one family of the 7,000 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.

They asked the German head of state to express some kind of feelings toward the suffering of those prisoners who were held captive for resisting occupation while Shalit was captured while firing shells at Gaza children.

The Hebrew radio reported on Monday night that the German president, who is currently on a state visit to Israel, had called on the Shalit family in their tent pitched in occupied Jerusalem in front of the Israeli premier’s office.

The broadcast quoted Wulff as saying that he would work for the release of Shalit and stressed that the Red Cross should visit him without mentioning the Palestinian prisoners held by Israel in bad incarceration conditions.
