Racist Israeli minister Ben-Gvir scraps rule allowing lawmakers to visit Palestinian prisoners

TEL AVIV, Sunday, January 8, 2023 (WAFA) – Israel’s far-right National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir announced today that he is planning to cancel regulations that allow any lawmaker to meet with Palestinian freedom fighters incarcerated in Israeli jails.

In a statement, Ben-Gvir said he had informed Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana that he intends to return to an older protocol, according to which only one lawmaker from each faction will be allowed to visit the Palestinian prisoners, provided that visits be held under strict supervision.

Ben Gvir himself has been convicted several times for supporting Jewish terror and for incitement to racism against Arabs and non-Jews.  

Last week, Ben Gvir visited the recently renovated high-security Nafha Prison to review the imprisonment conditions of the Palestinian political prisoners and to ensure these conditions never improve.
