The ICRC has visited prisoners held by Israel since 1967; currently, it carries out visits each year to some 10,000 people held by Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. Its working methods are the same here as everywhere else in the world where this activity is conducted. The aim is to ensure correct treatment and decent conditions of detention and to help provide the detainees with a link to the outside world.
