GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Dozens of family members of Palestinian prisoners from the Gaza Strip on Monday morning left the coastal enclave to Israel via Erez crossing to visit relatives in Nafha prison.

A representative of the Red Cross confirmed that 93 Gaza residents including 23 children left to Nafha prison to visit 49 relatives held in Israel’s custody.

The official, Nasser al-Najjar, highlighted that visitors were loaded in buses near the committee’s headquarters in Gaza City.

Some 420 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip are held in Israeli jails and they were deprived of family visits for several years after Hamas took over the coastal enclave.
