GAZA, (PIC)– The mother of released hunger striker Ayman Al-Sharawne and two of his brothers arrived in Gaza via Rafah crossing on Thursday.
Sharawne arrived in the Gaza Strip last Sunday after signing a deal with the Israeli prison service by which he ended his 250 days hunger strike and was exiled to Gaza for ten years.
Tawfik Abu Naim, the head of the prisoners and liberated prisoners society, said that the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) refused to allow the travel of Sharawne family from Al-Khalil to Gaza via the Beit Hanun (Erez) crossing, which only takes half an hour by car.
He said that the family members were forced to travel to Jordan then to Cairo and finally to Gaza via Rafah border terminal.
Abu Naim said that the IOA was having its revenge on Sharawne by exacerbating the suffering of his family’s travel.
Sharawne, from Doura in Al-Khalil, is married and have nine children. The IOA only allowed his mother and two of his brothers to travel to Gaza to meet him.
