Palestinians from Gaza visit relatives jailed in Israel

Dec. 8, 2014 2:34 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 9, 2014 2:13 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A number of Palestinians were allowed to enter Israel on Monday to visit their jailed relatives, a Red Cross spokeswoman said.

Suhair Zaqqut, a spokeswoman of the International Committee of the Red Cross, told Ma'an that 21 Palestinians including two children left Gaza through the Erez crossing.

They visited a total of 16 Palestinians jailed in the Israeli prison of Eshel, Zaqqut said.

She said Israel issued permits for a limited number of Palestinians from Gaza to visit their jailed relatives every Monday.

There are around 450 Palestinian men from the Gaza Strip in Israeli jails. Israel denied Gaza prisoners family visits when Hamas took control of the Strip in 2007, but in July 2012, family visits resumed.

Only close relatives are allowed to visit Gazan prisoners in Israeli custody.
