84 Citizens from Gaza Visit Their Relatives Held In Nafha Jail

GAZA, (PIC)-- A new batch of prisoners' families from the Gaza Strip, including 17 children, at dawn Monday headed for Nafha prison to visit their detained relatives.

The Information Officer in the International Committee of the Red Cross Nasser Al-Najjar told PIC's correspondent that 84 citizens from Gaza, including 17 children, took the buses and headed for Beit Hanoun / Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip, and then to the Israeli Nafha prison to visit their detained family members.

Occupation allowed after six years the resumption of visits for prisoners from Gaza, under the agreement signed between the leadership of the captive movement and the Israeli Prison Authority.
