Israeli forces allegedly detain Gaza university lecturer over suspicions of hacking

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces allegedly detained a Palestinian lecturer from the besieged Gaza Strip last week over suspicions that he was working with a Hamas-affiliated hacker group, sources told Ma'an on Tuesday. 

Palestinian sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces had detained Dr. Ramzi Abid when he attempted to leave Gaza through the Israeli-controlled Erez crossing last Sunday.

The sources said that Abid had been traveling to Italy in order to attend a workshop. Abid works as a lecturer at Gaza’s Islamic University, according to the sources.

The sources added that Abid was being accused of working with a Hamas-affiliated hacker group, which reportedly targets cell phones and cameras belonging to the Israeli army.

A spokesperson for COGAT, Israel's agency responsible for implementing Israeli policies in the occupied Palestinian territory, told Ma'an they were looking into the case.
