[Wednesday, December 11, 2013] Israeli sources have reported that the army has kidnapped two Palestinians who crossed the “border fence” between the Gaza Strip and Israel.
The sources said that the two were unarmed, and likely tried to enter Israel searching for work.
The two have been moved to an interrogation facility in an Israeli settlement close to the border with the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip.
There have been dozens of similar incidents as the Gaza Strip remains under strict Israeli siege, despite Israeli claims of easing it, and allowing a limited number of trucks carrying urgently needed supplies into the coastal region.
It is worth mentioning that dozens of Palestinians have been killed or wounded, and that dozens more have been kidnapped, for approaching the border fence area, while most of them were working in Palestinian lands close to the border, and did not even come near the fence.
Israel considers Palestinians lands close to the border fence to be a “no-man zone”, and anyone who enters it is subject to direct army fire without warning.
