Families of political detainees stage sit-in outside PA jail in Jericho

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The families of political prisoners Islam Saleh and Mohamed Asi held a sit-in on Friday afternoon outside the detention center of the Palestinian Authority intelligence agency in Jericho after they were prevented from visiting them.

An informed source told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that two families of 20 individuals left Beit Lakiya village, near Ramallah city, in the early morning hours on Friday on their way to visit their relatives Saleh and Asi in Jericho jail, but they were unjustifiably barred from seeing them.

After their attempt to visit the prisoners failed, the families decided to stay outside the jail to protest such attitude by the PA jailers.

After long hours of waiting, the jailers allowed only the mother of Islam to see her son for a few minutes.

Members of the families said they are determined to come back later during the current week to stage an open-ended protest outside the jail.
