LONDON, (PIC)– A number of British lawmakers said on Tuesday they would pay a visit to the occupied Palestinian lands next month to check on the humanitarian situation there.

The lawmakers also plan to visit some prisoners and hunger strikers in Israeli jails as well as some families of prisoners from the 1948 occupied lands.

This came during a meeting in parliament with officials from the European network for the defense of human rights and Palestinian detainees, Yousuf Al-Sedeek foundation for prisoners and Al-Mizan center for human rights.

In a related matter, some families of Palestinian prisoners staged a sit-in on Tuesday outside the Red Cross headquarters in Tulkarem city in solidarity with the hunger strikers and in protest at medically neglecting the prisoners.

According to the Palestinian information center reporter in the city, dozens of families rallied outside the building holding banners denouncing the international silence on Israel’s violations against the Palestinian prisoners.

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.
