On Monday, 16th July, 47 Palestinians " mothers, fathers and wives" got their permits to visit 25 prisoners from Gaza Strip, detained in Israeli jails for the first time in six years based on an agreement signed between the prisoners' strike leadership and Israeli prisons' administration.
The families gathered in front of the headquarters of the International Committee for the Red Cross in Gaza Strip and went by busses to Beit Hanoun "Ezer" crossing north of Gaza that transferred them to Israeli jails.
The approval came on resuming the visits of Gaza's prisoners within the agreement that the prisoners signed under an Egyptian supervision in 14th May, at the end of the "dignity strike", prisoners launched in prisons and lasted for 28 continuous days.
The International Committee for the Red Cross said that the result of the meeting that was held between the prisoners' parents, representatives of the institutions in Gaza and the Israeli authority was the approval of issuing permits for 47 families to visit 25 prisoners from Gaza, under Israeli conditions.
