An Egyptian political delegation is set to visit Tel Aviv and Ramallah, in the West Bank, on Thursday to review the case of Palestinian security detainees and prisoners held in Israel and the reconciliation of Palestinian groups.

Iran PressMiddle East: The news was reported by Al-Mayadin TV channel, quoting informed sources.

Last week, Palestinian prisoner Daoud al-Khatib died at Israel’s Ofer jail due to what rights groups said was medical negligence. His death has reignited calls to hold Israeli authorities accountable for the deaths of prisoners as a result of poor detention conditions.

While medical negligence in Israeli jails has long been denounced by Palestinians, the Coronavirus pandemic has further stoked concerns about the health of those behind bars.

In July, Israel’s Supreme Court sparked further condemnation after it ruled that Palestinian prisoners have no right to social distancing protection against the virus.
