WEST BANK, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authorities have tentatively agreed to end isolation of all Palestinian prisoners held in solitary confinement with the exception of three.
Special sources told the PIC that a meeting was held in Nafha jail between leaders of Palestinian hunger striking prisoners and Israeli prison authority representative for five hours.
They said that the prisoners included some of those held in isolation, adding that their case was discussed along with other demands of striking prisoners.
They said that preliminary reports indicated that the prison authority agreed to end the isolation of all prisoners with the exception of three Hamas leaders namely Ibrahim Hamed, Abdullah Al-Barghouthi, and Hassan Salame, adding, however, that no official word was yet announced.
The Israeli representative at the talks said that visits for Gaza prisoners have been approved while measures taken against prisoners following the capture of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit would be reviewed. Shalit was released late last year in a prisoners’ exchange deal.
