Israel Prisons Service will block families of Palestinian prisoners from visiting their kin on Tuesday out of fears that violence will break out between the families and protesters demonstrating for the release of Gilad Schalit. The decision will affect the Hadarim and Shikma prisons, which is where The Campaign to Free Gilad Schalit will hold its rallies. Visitation at the Medigo prison will not be interrupted.
