GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Families from Gaza were unable to visit their relatives in Israeli jails on Monday after Israeli authorities closed the Erez, or Beit Hanoun, crossing for the Jewish holiday of Purim.

"Families from the Gaza Strip have not left to visit their sons in Israeli jails as the Erez crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip was closed due to Purim celebrations," a spokesman for the International Committee of the Red Cross, Nasser al-Najjar, told Ma'an.

Gaza families visit jailed relatives in Israel every Monday via the Erez crossing on buses run by the ICRC.

Israel closed both the Erez and Kerem Shalom crossings with Gaza following several days of recent cross border violence.

'Happy Purim', but of course not if you live in Gaza!

Not to sound cold, but, who cares? surely there are more important things being affected by the border crossing being closed than some palestinians not being able to visit their terrorist family members in jail for a few weeks, they're in jail, you'll have plenty of time to see them, they arent going anywhere.
