GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities are targeting the families of Palestinian detainees in order to deter them from visiting, the Ministry of Detainees in Gaza said Wednesday.

In recent months there has been an increase in procedures such as searching female relatives, confiscating goods brought to detainees, verbal insults and destroying visit permits, detainees ministry spokesman Riyad Al-Ashqar told Ma'an.

The wife of one detainee was also detained on suspicion of smuggling mobile phones into the prison. Suha Abu Munshar was transferred to trial on Thursday, Al-Ashqar said.

The detainees ministry called on the International Committee of the Red Cross to put pressure on the Israeli authorities to stop harassing the relatives of detainees and ensure visits are conducted to international standards.

The ministry also called for the release of Suha Abu Munshar.

Seems rather fair to me, since Hamas has targeted the relatives of Gilad Shalit, not letting his relatives visit him and also denying him visists from the ICRC, or didn't you know ?
At least your guys know that their imprisoned relatives are still alive, we can't say the same about Gilad Shalit

The latest round of discussions in Egypt, just round, going noplace, they have been suspended AGAIN!
