BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – The International Committee of the Red Cross has visited the families of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners to carry messages from their relatives, an official said Thursday.
Abdul Fattah Khalil of the Bethlehem branch of the Prisoners Society said the Red Cross visited a number of hunger-striking prisoners’ families to comfort them and carry messages from the prisoners.
Doctors and representatives of the Red Cross frequently visit Israeli jails and hospitals where the administrative hunger-strikers have been on hunger strike for over a month.
