111-6The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) on Sunday banned two Palestinian children from visiting their father in the Israeli Rimon jail.

The Israeli occupation army prevented the children from passing through al-Dhahriya checkpoint, in southern al-Khalil, to reach out to their father, whom they said they missed a lot.

Both Yamen and Mohamed have not had contact with their father for the fifth month running due to an Israeli visit-ban.

Prisoner Wael al-Arja has been held in Israeli jails for seven years, serving two life-sentences on charges of hurling stones on an Israeli settler vehicle near Halhul town, in northern al-Khalil province.
