BEERSHEBA (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Chief Military Prosecutor plans to indict six Palestinians who were captured by Israeli forces during the ongoing military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli sources told Ma'an that the six detainees to be indicted by the prosecutor's southern command are affiliated to the Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

The individuals were detained during the Israeli ground invasion and are reportedly accused of involvement in firing rockets and digging tunnels.

It was not initially clear whether Palestinians captured by Israeli forces in Gaza were being held as prisoners of war or being treated as detainees from an occupied territory, similar to West Bank detainees.

A spokeswoman for the Israel Prison Services did not have any information regarding the report, and could not comment on whether Palestinians from Gaza were detainees or prisoners of war.

Earlier in the week, the Israeli army previously admitted that 159 Palestinians had been captured during the Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip and that they had been transferred to the Shin Bet intelligence agency for questioning.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Ministry accused Israel of "withholding" crucial information on the detainees that would allow the ministry to keep track of them, including their ID numbers, locations, and conditions.

More than 6,500 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli prisons, including more than 1,500 captured by Israel in just the last two months.

In Holland we do that every day, we go to Belgium and kidnap some people there to lock them op in Holland. The same we do to Germany. Sounds idiot? According to "Israel" it is normal, they also do that every day, take some from Gaza, and take some from the West Bank, lock them up in "Israel" (that is occupied Palestine)

When you read this artilce,think NAZI OCCUPIERS ROUNDING UP THE JEWISH/ZIONIST UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE IN WW2 EUROPE!
WW2 resistance groups/militia's against Nazi/Facist OCCUPATION,LEBENSRAUM,WAR CRIMES(Holocaust,ethnic cleansing,extermination,genocide etc)were honored & later PROMOTED to lead Zionist ISRAEL,after they had done SAME WAR CRIMES against Palestinians,since 1940's.Now Israel rounds up RESISTANCE vs Zionist OCCUPATION.But still Jews are HEROES?That's Absolutist criminal HYPOCRISY!!

"Captured"??? Wouldn't "Kidnapped" be more appropriate when talking about civilians and civilian resistance? Ma'an you should be ashamed of yourselves the way you embrace the language used by the occupiers.
