GAZA,(PIC)–Waed association for captives and ex-captives organized a sit-in in Gaza, attended by prisoners’ children to demand visiting their parents in the Israeli jails after postponing family visits to prisoners from Gaza until further notice.

Atta Za’anin, the prisoner Hani Za’anin’s son, said that he has the right to visit his father in occupation prisons, adding that he had not seen his father since seven years ago and that he almost forgot his face and the tone of his voice due to the Israeli ban on prisoners’ visits.

Za’anin spoke about the suffering of his family, urging the free world and humanity supporters to act to compel the occupation to allow the children to see their parents. “Is it prohibited to demand this? And why no international humanitarian institution responds to our call?” he wondered.

For their part, Akram Alrichawi’s family spoke about his bad health condition, where he is still tied to the bed in one of the Israeli clinics, his daughter explained, adding that he refused to break his hunger strike protesting against the Israeli ill-treatment of the sick prisoners in occupation prisons.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
