Israel Arrests Ashkelon Prisoners’ Parents

RAMALLAH, April 9, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli soldiers Tuesday arrested two elderly returning from visiting their sons in Ashkelon prison, said an official source.

Prisoners’ Minister Issa Qaraqi told WAFA that Israeli forces held a bus carrying prisoners’ families on their way back from Ashkelon prison for four hours and searched them before arresting two.

Qaraqi condemned these practices which aim, as he claims, to harass Palestinian prisoners and their families.
