Gaza – Ma’an – Israeli troops detained a Palestinian football player on his way out of the Gaza Strip through Erez crossing Thursday afternoon.

The former forward with the Rafah team Mahmoud Kamel As-Sarsak was on his way to Nablus where he was expected to join the Balata team, and continue his football career. Two other footballers travelling with As-Sarsak were turned away at the crossing, while the young player was taken into Israeli custody.

Mahmoud’s brother Imad Al-Sarsak said soldiers took him to Ashkelon prison, and noted that none of the family was made aware of any charges against him.
