According to images that went viral this Thursday on social networks, Israeli soldiers left dozens of Palestinians almost naked, with their hands tied or handcuffed on the streets of Gaza, and in some cases they are taken away in vans. Dozens of almost naked men, with their hands tied or handcuffed, appear in images released this Thursday while they remain on the street or are taken away by the Israeli military, perhaps arrested.
Images published on social networks show detainees in groups or lines sitting on the street, with their clothes and footwear scattered on the ground, or others being taken away in military trucks. A third photograph shows what appears to be the same group, kneeling on the ground and with their eyes covered with a blindfold, with Israeli soldiers in field uniform around himin a sandy terrain that seems to have been removed by bulldozers.
EFE has consulted the Israeli Army about this, which has assured that it will soon provide details on the matter. But Israeli television points out that they are Hamas “terrorists.” Some images were commented on by local journalists from the Strip, who assured that they correspond to civilians captured in Gaza towns such as Beit Lahia.
One of those who appears in the photographs is identified like a journalist, Diaa Al Kahlot, bureau chief of the Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed newspaper in Gaza. The photographs and videos, without verification by independent sources, show, according to Israeli media, military checks of the Israeli forces in search of possible “terrorists.”
The UN considers These images are “very worrying.” “The images we saw this morning are very worrying because everyone has the right to human dignity, and the images we saw today of how people are treated are very worrying,” the spokesperson for the General Secretary, Stéphane Dujarric.
