GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two brothers at a border crossing in north Gaza on Tuesday, a rights group said.

The al-Mezan Center for Human Rights said in a statement that Rami Riyad al-Tayeb, 32, and his brother Mohammad, 23, were detained at the Beit Hanoun, or Erez, crossing while en-route to visit their mother in the West Bank.

Both men had Israeli-approved permits for the visit, the al-Mezan center said, but were arrested and transferred to an Israeli detention center.

The Gaza-based rights group will hire a lawyer to defend the two brothers, with no further details about why they were being held.

Israeli forces routinely arrest people in the occupied Palestinian territories, usually on the pretext of security.

Israel holds 4,743 Palestinians in its prisons, including 178 held without charge, according to latest figures from prisoners group Addameer.
