Gaza crossing closed as workers protest treatment

Oct. 4, 2012 12:31 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 5, 2012 11:48 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) The Erez crossing crossing into the Gaza Strip was closed Thursday as Palestinian transport workers went on strike in protest of mistreatment by Gaza security forces.

Merchants and patients were stranded at the crossing from early in the morning, a Ma'an reporter said.

The striking workers, members of the Palestinian transport sector, said they were protesting the Gaza security forces' apparent decision to begin searching workers in the area.

Security forces in the Gaza Strip have faced criticism since last week after forcefully dispersing a women's union's march and harassing journalists during a rare anti-Hamas protest.

Interior Minister Fathi Hammad has formed an inquiry into the allegations.

Also on Wednesday Human Rights Watch released a report accusing Hamas security forces and the justice system in Gaza of severe lapses including torture and unfair trials.
