Dozens of activists from The Campaign to Free Gilad Schalit protested at the gates of the Hadarim prison on Tuesday, Israel Radio reported.

The activists were attempting to stop the families of Palestinian prisoners from visiting their relatives. In the end they gave pamphlets and other reading material to the Palestinians, and the family visits went ahead as planned.

The Israeli activists also called for the prisoners' families to help push for a prisoner exchange deal with Israel.
