Following Hamas strikes, the Israeli military is said to have detained around 100 individuals in Gaza, and the Palestinian authorities have demanded that information about them be made public.
Qaddura Fares, the head of the Palestinian Authority’s commission for prisoners, stated on Sunday that he had received a report from Israeli officials stating that their side had made 105 arrests.
