OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Relatives of Palestinian prisoners appealed to human rights groups to demand an end to the Israeli strip and humiliating search of them while on their way to visit their next of kin.
They charged the Israeli soldiers with deliberately delaying them at checkpoints.
The relatives said that they are forced to pass through electronic gates, adding that doctors and specialists have warned that those gates emanate harmful rays that could lead to cancer. They said that they are screened for mobiles by taking naked photos of them.
They charged that the searches were in violation of human rights and international agreements, urging the Red Cross to intervene and stop such practices.
