Days Of Palestine – Gaza

The Israeli occupation forces on Tuesday evening kidnaped a Palestinian passenger from the Gaza Strip at the Beit Hanoun (Erez) border crossing.

The passenger was identified as Ahmed Odeh and he was seeking an Israeli permit to enter the West Bank in order to travel to Jordan through Allenby (al-Karama) crossing.

According to human rights activist Abdul-Naser Farwanah, the Palestinian liaison office in Gaza affirmed that Odeh was arrested for no known reason.  

As a result, the number of Palestinian passengers arrested by the IOF at the Beit Hanoun crossing has risen to 13 people since the beginning of 2019.
