Palestinian Prisoners families protest at Red Cross

Every Monday for years the families of the Palestinian prisoners are protesting at the offices of the Red Cross in Gaza City. These families for almost 2 years are not allowed to visit their relatives imprisoned in Israeli jails. According to human rights organizations (including Israeli ones), 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 their number exceeds 11,600.
