The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) on Monday evening kidnaped a Palestinian businessman at the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing in the north of the Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian official from the crossings and border authority told Quds Press that Israeli intelligence officers arrested a businessman called Jawad Hassan after he went to the crossing for an interview.

He added that Hassan had submitted a request asking to allow him to travel through the crossing.

The arrest of a passenger at the crossing was not the first such incident since the beginning of the current year. The IOA had arrested four citizens after they applied for permission to travel through  the crossing for medical and commercial purposes.
