RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Attiya Abu Mousa, a Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails, has been deprived of family visits for the past 12 years, the statistics department at the ministry of prisoners said on Sunday.

It said in a press release that Abu Mousa, who has been in prison for 19 years, is from Khan Younis, south of the Gaza Strip and is serving a life sentence in Nafha desert prison.

The ministry recalled that Abu Mousa was affiliated with a Fatah armed wing and was previously held twice for nine and six months respectively in administrative detention.

It said that Israel had banned visits to Abu Mousa for “security reasons” long before it clamped bans on visits to all prisoners from the Gaza Strip since mid 2007.
