GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestine center for studies has said that the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) had postponed visits to prisoners in Megiddo prison on Wednesday to allow more time to cover for its crime on Tuesday.

The center said in a press release on Wednesday that the IOA informed the Red Cross that no visits would be allowed for Megiddo prisoners till 20th November.

It charged that the visit cancellation came as a punishment for prisoners in the first place for protesting the death of their colleague Hasan Turabi, who was held in Megiddo before his transfer to Afula hospital where he died of cancer.

The center said that the cancellation was also aimed at covering the result of its assault on prisoners with teargas and beating, which caused fractures and bruises to many of them.

The center asked international organizations to send a fact-finding mission into Israeli jails to probe the attacks and crimes committed against the Palestinians prisoners in violation of the simplest rules of international agreements.

It called for bringing Israeli leaders and prison wardens to account for offences against prisoners that are tantamount to war crimes.
