Israel Cancels Family visits to Prisoners this Week

RAMALLAH, June 15, 2014 (WAFA) – The Israeli authorities informed Sunday the International Committee of the Red Cross it had cancelled the family visits for Palestinian prisoners, held in Israeli jails, for this week, reported the Palestinian Prisoner’s Club (PPC).

“This [decision] has nothing to do with Israel’s claim that this is part of its security measures, but is rather an attempt to impose a collective punishment, with the aim to subdue the prisoners and their families,” said Qaddura Fares, Head of PPC.
