Gaza man seeking family reunification 'detained at Erez'

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian man at a military crossing from the Gaza Strip last week, relatives told Ma'an.

Eyhab Ahmad Abu al-Jidyan, 39, attended an interview with security officials at the Erez crossing last Monday and never returned, his family said.

Abu al-Jidyan was seeking permission to bring his children, who are currently staying at a facility for people with disabilities in the West Bank, back to Gaza.

He currently visits his three children, who are blind, at the Ash-Shorouq center in Beit Jala once a year. Seeking to reunite the family, he tried to bring the children to his home in Jabalia refugee camp, where he is the sole parent of 10 children.

A spokesman for Israel's military department in charge of the crossing said he had no information about the detention.
