State of Palestine: Gazans protest abolishing visitation rights for Hamas prisoners' families

Palestinian Territory, Occupied, Gaza
March 5, 2018 at 13:26 GMT -00:00 · Published

Scores of protesters gathered outside the Red Cross headquarters in the Gaza Strip on Monday to decry Israel's recent decision to end visitation rights for families of relatives in Israeli prisons.

Senior Hamas official Ismail Radwan was at the demonstration where he stated: "The Israeli occupation prevented the families to from visiting their prisoners especially the members of Hamas.

We say that this is a crime against humanity. The steadfastness and the strength of the prisoners will not be broken. It will not stop the path of resistance."

Other demonstrators were seen burning images of Donald Trump and the Star of David.

In January, the Israeli government called for restricting visits by Hamas family members from Gaza. Last month, Israel's Supreme Court ruled that it would not issue visitation permits to West Bank families of Hamas members held in Israeli prisons. The escalation followed a petition by family members of an Israeli soldier who died during Operation Protective Edge in 2014, and whose remains have yet to be returned to them by Hamas.

Decenas de manifestantes se reunieron frente a la sede de la Cruz Roja en la Franja de Gaza este lunes. Los activistas denunciaron la decisión de Israel de cancelar las visitas a los familiares de los prisioneros del movimiento Hamás en las cárceles israelíes. Algunos de los manifestantes fueron vistos quemando imágenes de Donald Trump y la Estrella de David.

“Es un crimen contra la humanidad”, dijo un alto funcionario de Hamás.

En enero, el Gobierno israelí pidió restringir las visitas de los familiares de los miembros de Hamás desde Gaza. El mes pasado, la Corte Suprema de Israel dictaminó que no emitiría permisos de visita a los familiares de los miembros de Hamas de Cisjordania en las cárceles israelíes. El paso fue realizado por petición de los familiares del ciudadano israelí Avera Mengitu que cayó durante la última conflagración, en Gaza, en 2014.
