Israeli forces reportedly detain Palestinian crossing Gaza border fence into Israel

Oct. 3, 2016 12:08 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 3, 2016 7:00 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a young Palestinian man on Monday morning after he crossed the fence between the besieged Gaza Strip and Israel, Hebrew-language news sites reported.

According to Walla News, the Palestinian cut a hole in the wire fence near the Israeli village of Holit in the Eshkol region to cross into Israel, when an Israeli army patrol spotted the young man and detained him shortly after he crossed the fence.

Walla added that the young man was not armed.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.

The majority of the more than 1.8 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are sealed inside the coastal enclave due to the continuation of a near-decade long military blockade imposed by Israel and upheld by Egypt on the southern border.

The destruction from three Israeli offensives over the past six years and slow reconstruction due to the blockade led the UN in September to warn that Gaza could be “uninhabitable” by 2020.
