GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel on Monday prevented Palestinians in Gaza from visiting their relatives in Israeli jails for the fifth consecutive week, the International Committee of the Red Cross said.
Israel informed the ICRC that prisoners from Gaza could not receive family visits because of Jewish holidays, ICRC spokeswoman Arwa Muhanna told Ma'an.
Israel has prevented the family visits since March 18.
Muhanna said the ICRC was in constant contact with Israeli authorities to resume the visits.
Under international law, detainees are entitled to receive family visits. more
