GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel detained two fishermen off the coast of northern Gaza on Thursday, locals said.

Rights groups said Ramiz Saadallah and Eyhab Saadallah were detained after Israeli naval forces obstructed their boat off the Sudaniyya coastline.

Meanwhile, Basim Ali Tbeis, 42, was detained at the Erez crossing while on his way to seek medical treatment.

The reason for his arrest is unclear.
