Israel was due to begin permitting family visits to Gazan prisoners in Israeli jails for the first time in five years, starting from Monday, Israel Radio reported Thursday.

On Monday, 25 prisoners in the Ramon jail are expected to receive family visits, and in the coming weeks additional visits are expected.

According to Israel Radio, an agreement was made two months ago regarding the prisoners rights, as part of negotiations to end the hunger strikes.
