NABLUS (Ma’an) – Families of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails on Sunday closed with chains the main door of the International Committee of the Red Cross office in Nablus in the northern West Bank.

Spokesman of Nablus' higher committee for prisoners' affairs Imad Ishteiwi told Ma’an that dozens of family members of prisoners arrived at offices of the Red Cross in southern Nablus and tied the main door with chains.

He said families were protesting against the passive role of the Red Cross for hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners.

This protest, said Ishteiwi, is a message to the Red Cross which has not visited hunger-striking prisoners so far, nor has it taken any steps against the Israeli prison service.

Ishteiwi highlighted that more protective moves would be taken across the West Bank against international organizations as long as they remain inactive toward the prisoners’ issue.

Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails without trial under so-called administrative detention have been on hunger strike for three weeks. Twenty-two of the hunger strikers are from Nablus district.

The ICRC is an NGO (Not Go Outside) so it is ever unlikely they even noticed the main door was chained. As for visiting the prisoners, once again this would involve going OUTSIDE, so no visits. First rule of NGOs is NOT GO OUTSIDE.
