GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested a man on Tuesday at a border crossing in north Gaza, security sources said.
Muhammad Abu Daka, 31, had traveled with his mother from south Gaza to an Israeli hospital, where she was receiving treatment.
On their way back to Khan Younis, Abu Daka was arrested at the Beit Hanoun, or Erez, crossing in north Gaza and taken for investigation, Palestinian security officials said.
His mother was allowed to enter Gaza and return home.
An Israeli army spokesman said a Palestinian man was briefly detained after coming close to the border and later released.
