GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinians late Sunday night after they tried to enter Israel.

The four were detained near Kissufim, an Israeli community in the Negev located near the border, east of Khan Younis in Gaza, a source told Ma'an.

Three of those detained are from the Abu Muhareb family and the fourth is from the Abu Sawawin family, the source said.

All were taken to an unknown location, the source added.

A number of Palestinians have recently attempted to breach the border looking for work in Israel, the source said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the four were taken for questioning.

Israel maintains a blockade of the Gaza Strip and strictly controls the exit of Palestinians from the sole passenger crossing with Israel in the north of Gaza, Erez.
