OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Shaul Mofaz, the head of the Israeli parliament’s foreign and security committee, urged the Israeli government to re-consider visits allowed to Palestinian captives.

He added that prisoners meet Red Cross representatives once every three months and relatives once every two weeks.

Mofaz, a former war minister and a member of the parliamentary lobby pressuring for the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, said that the government should use all available means to force Hamas to accept the Israeli position and conclude the swap deal (according to Israeli terms).

Members of the parliamentary lobby visited the Ofer jail, north of occupied Jerusalem, on Sunday where one of them Miriam Regev said that the Palestinian prisoners should be deprived of all privileges in order to pressure Hamas.

Mofaz demands more pressure on Palestinian prisoners.
