Detainees' mothers plan sit-in at Red Cross HQ

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Detainees' Mothers Committee said Monday that it will spend a night in front the International Committee of the Red Cross' headquarters in Gaza City to protest Israel's policy of barring Strip residents from visiting detainees, a member said.

Mother of detained Ibrahim Baroud said the sit-in will be held a day before Eid begins, the Muslim holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, which is expected around 10 September.

Rafat Hamdounah, the head of the Detainees' Studies Center, said dozens of mothers will join the sit-in to "express their condemnation of the Israeli Administration's treatment of them and their sons," a statement read.

Hamdounah called for organizations to support the sit-in and for the media to widely cover the issue.
