Gaza: Video appears to show Palestinian men stripped and detained by IDF

Video circulating on social media shows dozens of Palestinian men stripped to their underwear kneeling on the ground and being guarded by Israeli soldiers.

The images are thought to have been filmed in the town of Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza.

London-based news outlet The New Arab said one of its journalists, Diaa Al-Kahlout, had been arrested in the area, along with relatives and “other civilians”.

A spokesman for The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said that “IDF fighters and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) officers detained and interrogated hundreds of terror suspects. Many of them also turned themselves in to our forces during the past four hours”.

The BBC’s Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen has this assessment of the images.
