BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Israel’s prison service informed the Red Cross that family visits for Palestinian prisoners held at Nafha prison scheduled for Sunday were cancelled.

Activist in Palestinian prisoners affairs Muyassar Atiyani told Ma’an that the decision came to punish prisoners after they carried out comprehensive strike on Friday and Saturday.

She explained that 350 Gazan prisoners at Nafha had been deprived of family visits since four years.

The rest of prisoners at Nafha, 120, are from the West Bank, and their families help Gazan inmates by contacting families in the Gaza Strip to reassure them about their loved ones.
