JENIN, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces blocked a visit to Palestinian prisoner Sheikh Jamal Abul Haija by his daughter Sajeda on Monday without giving reasons.

Family of the Sheikh, a Hamas leader, told the PIC reporter that IOF soldiers forced Sajeda out of the bus she was mounting on her way to Nafha desert prison.

They said that the soldiers near Jalama roadblock to the north west of Jenin told Sajeda that she was banned from visiting her father.

The family denounced the act, adding that Sajeda had all the legal papers allowing her to visit her father along with a ruling by the Israeli higher court.

Sajeda is the only family member allowed to visit Abul Haija, who has been held in solitary confinement for the past seven years, for alleged “security reasons”.
