At 10:30a.m. on Tuesday, 22 August 2017, Israeli Occupying forces took to detention Ayman Rafiq Hamad, 43, who is a resident of Beit Hanoun city in North Gaza. For 21 years, Hamad has been working with a transportation company operating in the Erez area. He was taken for interrogation once he arrived at his workplace, and he did not receive any reasons for his detention. Only at 18:00 did Israeli authorities inform the Palestinian Military Liaison of Hamad’s detention.
