ISM Gaza | Palestinian Prisoners
8 April 2009
Every Monday for years the families of the Palestinian prisoners are protesting at the offices of the Red Cross in Gaza City.
These families have not been allowed to visit their relatives imprisoned in Israeli jails for almost 2 years. According to human rights organizations (including Israeli organizations), Palestinian prisoners are submitted to torture and ill-treatment, permitted by the Israeli High Court of Justice. Israeli Prison Service admits that there are about 8,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails, but according to Palestinian Authorities the number exceeds 11,600.
