#PalHunger | Ministry: Israeli authorities separating Gaza prisoners

Maan News Agency | May 30, 2012


RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Israeli prison authorities are transferring detainees from Nafha prison to other jails, the PA Ministry of Prisoner Affairs said Wednesday.

Prison officials have started to transfer 395 prisoners from Gaza to various detention centers, the ministry said in a statement.

Prisoners reject the move and say Israel is separating them as punishment for the recent mass hunger strike in Israeli jails, the ministry added.

On Tuesday, the ministry said detainees from Gaza had rejected an Israeli proposal to allow them one half-hour visit from their families every two months.

On May 15, around 2,000 prisoners ended a month-long hunger strike after Israel agreed to “facilitate” their demands — which included allowing prisoners from the Gaza Strip to receive visits from their families.

Israel has banned residents of Gaza from visiting their relatives in Israel jails since 2007. Prisoners from the West Bank are allowed a 45-minute visit every two weeks.
