Israeli Authorities Ban Family Visits for Striking Prisoners in Israeli Nafha Jail
Israeli authorities Sunday banned more than eight Palestinian families from the city of Hebron, in the southern West Bank, from visiting their imprisoned relatives in the Israeli prison of Nafha, according to local sources.

Hawzah News Agency - Ibrahim Najajra, head of prisoners and ex-prisoners affairs, said that Israeli forces sent back more than eight Palestinian families who were heading to Nafha prison to visit their imprisoned

relatives, who took part in the Palestinian prisoners’ mass hunger-strike last April, WAFA reported.

Najajra said that the ban provokes the agreement that was reached between strike leaders and Israeli prison services in order to break the strike, noting that prisoners may take new measures to protest this breach.

Israeli authorities last week banned seven other families from visiting their imprisoned relatives.
