Palestinian prisoners denied visits

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.

    However, Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails find it difficult to receive visits from their relatives.

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