Israel cancels permits for Gazan families to visit imprisoned relatives

Nov. 13, 2017 4:45 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2017 4:37 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities reportedly cancelled the permits of Palestinians from Gaza to visit their imprisoned relatives inside Israel’s Nafha prison for the remainder of November.

Spokeswoman of the Red Cross in Gaza, Suheir Zaqqout, told Ma’an that the permits were scheduled to be issued on Monday, adding that the cancellation was allegedly due to reparations inside the jail and the visitors hall.

Zaqqout added that out of the 6,198 Palestinians inside Israeli prisons, some 300 are from the Gaza Strip.

The majority of the more than 2 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are sealed inside the coastal enclave due to a decade long military blockade imposed by Israel and upheld by Egypt on the southern border.
