Israeli occupation forces arrested 11 Palestinians from Gaza in November

In November, the Israeli occupation forces arrested 11 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, bringing the number of detainees from the Gaza Strip since the beginning of 2019 to 126, according to human rights sources.

The israeli occupation forces arrested 11 Palestinian citizens from the Gaza Strip in November, said Abdel Nasser Farana, a specialist in prisoners' affairs.

Three citizens were arrested at the Beit Hanoun-Erez checkpoint in the northern Gaza Strip, which is controlled by the Israeli occupation forces, farana said.

"This brings the number of detainees since the beginning of this year (2019) to 126 Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, including 11 citizens arrested at the Beit Hanoun checkpoint on their way to and from the Gaza Strip, or after interviews there for the purpose of allowing them to move through it."
He explained that 37 citizens had been arrested at sea and were fishing professionals, and that 78 had been arrested after crossing the eastern and northern borders of the Gaza Strip towards the occupied Palestinian territories in 1948.
"Dozens of citizens who moved through the Beit Hanoun checkpoint were detained for hours, including those questioned, as the occupation authorities made the checkpoint a trap for detention, a place of pressure and sometimes for blackmail and bargaining," farouana said.

He said the arrests were "part of Israel's policy of dealing with the Palestinian people, but it is noticeable that attempts to infiltrate and cross the border are increasing, which has become a worrying phenomenon."

He added: "It calls on everyone to stop in the face of this phenomenon and study its causes and motives and face its repercussions and risks, and to move hard and work to control infiltration and stop the randomness of it."

Farouana stressed the importance of educating citizens and educating them about the interrogation, pressure and bargaining they may be subjected to, and how to deal with all this, while moving through the Beit Hanoun checkpoint, ensuring the protection of the individual and his social circle, and reducing the risk of arrest and its negative effects on the individual, family and society.

Some 300 citizens of the Gaza Strip are held in Israeli occupation prisons, and prisoner Zia al-Agha, who has been detained for more than 27 years, is the oldest and is considered the dean of Gaza prisoners.
