Hamas security forces detain prominent doctor in Gaza
Hamas security forces arrested Dr Mo'aweya Hassanein, chief of emergency and ambulance services in the Gaza Strip, his family said Saturday, dpa reported.
Hamas security personnel also confiscated the computer and cellphone of Hassanein when they detained him at his home overnight. The reason for the arrest was not immediately clear.
Hassanein has been Health Ministry spokesman since the beginning of the Palestinian Intifada in September 2000.
Hamas seized the control of the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after its militias routed the security forces of secular Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
