Convicts in Israeli jails not allowed to receive relatives during Eid holiday.

    Muslims around the world are celebrating Eid, a holiday that usually brings families together.

    Human rights organisations say that while Israeli convicts are allowed family and home visits, Palestinians are denied even a phone call .
