JENIN, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) on Wednesday prevented the family of the Palestinian detainee Muhammad Zakarna from visiting him in an Israeli jail under the security pretext. A PIC journalist quoted local sources as stating that the IOA turned down the appeals of Zakarna’s wife and children to visit the detainee in the Israeli Gilboa lock-up. The family was updated on the ban by the Red Cross office in Jenin. Prisoner Zakarna, 41, was arrested some three years ago by the Israeli occupation army. He suffered injuries and skull fractures during the investigation procedure. He had reportedly spent several years in Israeli jails.
