Palestinian families from Israel-besieged Gaza Strip on Monday will be able to to visit their relatives jailed in Israeli prisons for the first time in five years, officials said, under a deal that ended a prisoners' hunger strike.
The deal was signed last October.
"Forty people - families of 24 prisoners - arrived a short while ago at the Ramon prison," a Prisons Service spokeswoman said, adding that visits from Gaza relatives would now be held on a weekly basis.
Israel banned family visits from Gaza in 2007.
