GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities have banned parents from visiting their detained children over suspicions they smuggled cell phones into the jail during visits, a detainees' center reported.

Detainees at Shatta prison in Israel said their parents had brought them books but Israeli guards suspected the books concealed cell phones.

The prisoners' parents have been banned from visiting the prison for up to seventeen years, the center said, adding that the relatives denied all accusations of smuggling.
