She condemned, during a sit-in outside the Red Cross headquarters in the Gaza strip on Monday, the international human rights’ passive position towards the prisoners’ issue.

She stressed the importance of activating the prisoners’ issue at all levels and to work for the prisoners’ release from occupation prisons.

Al-Nouri, 31, started an open-ended hunger strike 52 days ago demanding his release after spending two thirds of his sentence according to Israeli law.

The hunger striker’s mother confirmed that her son and all Palestinian prisoners will remain steadfast till their liberation from Israeli jails.

The prisoner Jamal Al-Nouri was subjected during his detention to brutal torture which affected badly his health condition and his eye sight in particular.

Al-Nouri was arrested at Rafah crossing in July 2002 where he was sentenced to 20 years and then reduced to 13 years after appeal.

Meanwhile, dozens of Palestinian prisoners’ families in the Gaza Strip have been allowed, at dawn on Monday, to visit their sons in Nafha prison after an Israeli ban on family visits for 5 weeks.

Nearly 58 members of prisoners’ families were able to visit 43 prisoners in Nafha prison, Palestinian sources confirmed.

Family visits from the Gaza Strip have been banned since five weeks under the pretext of the Jewish holidays.

The occupation authorities had resumed family visits from the Gaza strip almost a year ago after the prisoners’ Dignity hunger strike, where Palestinian prisoners from the Gaza strip were deprived family visits for 6 years.
