GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Security services in the Gaza Strip reportedly arrested four militants early Saturday in Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip, Israeli media reported, quoting security sources in the besieged coastal enclave.

According to Israeli news site Ynet, security sources said that security members stopped the "four takfiri-group members" at a checkpoint in Rafah City, and that one of them was a known leader. "Takfiri" is a word used to refer to armed Sunni groups.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of Interior in Gaza said that one of the detainees was identified as Nour Issa who is wanted by Gaza security services -- a “takfiri leader” in the Gaza Strip that had returned to Gaza after around a year of fighting in Libya.

The ministry added that he was transferred for specialized sides for interrogation, according to the report.
