Ministry of prisoners: Israel is responsible for kidnapping four women from Gaza

The ministry of detainees and ex-detainees in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday held the IOA fully responsible for the lives of four Palestinian women who were abducted during the incursion of IOF troops into central Gaza and taken to an unknown destination.


In a statement received by the PIC, the ministry reported that Israeli special units backed by air cover encircled on Wednesday morning amid intensive gunfire the house of Al-Humaidi family and forced everyone out before rounding up four women and two men, pointing out that the IOA refuses to admit the kidnapping of the four women.


The ministry appealed to Egypt in its capacity as the truce sponsor to urgently intervene to get the four women released.


In the same context, the Palestinian center for human rights explained Wednesday that theIsraeli military aggression started on Tuesday at about 0830 pm. local time when IOF troops invaded on foot the Wadi Al-Salaqa village, east of Deir Al-Balah, and stormed the house of a Palestinian citizen called Mufeed Al-Rameli, adding that they detained him and his family in one room and turned the house into military post.


In a statement received by the PIC, the center also said that before the IOF troops withdrew from the area, they exploded the house of Al-Humaidi family and destroyed their property.


The center, in light of this Israeli aggression, appealed to the international community to intervene to stop the Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people and called on the contracting parties to the fourth Geneva convention to fulfill their obligations in this regard.
