Hamas is not allowing at least 22 foreign nationals who wish to exit the
Gaza Strip for Israel to do so. Among the members of the foreign press being
detained are nine Italian citizens, six citizens of Japan, one Canadian, one
South Korean and a French national. In addition, two Turkish Red Crescent
members have been refused exit.

This violation of the human rights of neutral foreigners is yet another
example of Hamas’ attempts to manipulate and pressure the press.

For its part, Israel is keeping the Erez crossing into Gaza open, allowing
passage to the foreign press, diplomats and humanitarian workers.
