Al-Mezan state that Israeli authorities controlling the crossing “trap” Palestinians, adding that a patient and a patient’s companion were arrested in two separate incidents last week.

Al-Mezan added that Gaza resident Tariq al-Haj, 41, was arrested while returning to Gaza after his 30-month-old son underwent surgery at one of the Israeli hospitals.

The human rights center reiterated that this is a violation of international humanitarian law.
