Gazans Visit Relatives Jailed in Israel for 1st Time since June

Over 60 Palestinians from Gaza visited relatives in Israeli jails on Monday for the first time since June, officials said.

A Palestinian crossings official said two buses carrying the relatives of Palestinian prisoners crossed into Israel, the first such visit since the trips were suspended in June.

The jail visits were banned following the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers.

Gaza families used to visit jailed relatives in Israel every Monday via the Erez crossing on buses run by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
