BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian man was detained on Sunday morning after crossing into Israel from the besieged Gaza Strip.

The unidentified man was found in the northern part of Gaza on the Israeli side of the border. An Israeli army spokesperson said that the man had “infiltrated” Israel from Gaza.

The spokesperson added that the Palestinian was detained and transferred to interrogations with Israeli security forces.

The continued Israeli siege and three devastating Israeli army offensives on the small territory in less than a decade, coupled with Palestinian Authority (PA) policies aimed at further pushing Gaza into a humanitarian crisis, has made life unbearable for many Palestinians in Gaza.

In 2012, the UN warned that Gaza could become uninhabitable by 2020 if current trends were not altered. However, a new report released in July by the UN said that “life for the average Palestinian in Gaza is getting more and more wretched,” and that for the majority of Gaza's residents, the territory may already be unlivable.
