GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Family members left the Gaza Strip on Monday to visit relatives being detained in Israeli jails, an official from the International Committee of the Red Cross said.

Ayman Shihabi, spokesman for the ICRC in Gaza, told Ma'an that 44 family members will visit Ramon jail to see jailed relatives.

In July, Israel allowed the first visits to prisoners from Gaza in five years. Visits had been banned since 2007 to pressure Hamas to release Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was freed in Oct. 2011.

Israel agreed to resume family visits for Gaza prisoners as part of a deal to end a mass month-long hunger strike in Israeli jails.
