  • Foreign Press Group Blasts Hamas’ “Thuggish Behavior”
    Israel’s Foreign Press Association (FPA) has condemned Hamas for “thuggish behavior” after the terror group detained a photographer for several hours last week and banned her from returning to Gaza. “FPA member Heidi Levine, a photographer for SIPA Press, was detained by Hamas security men for more than three hours before she was allowed to leave Gaza.” Hamas security told Levine she was banned, claiming her work “reflects badly on Gaza.”
    “The FPA strongly condemns the thuggish behavior of the Hamas security and the implication that Hamas should judge what is or isn’t acceptable coverage of Gaza. Unfortunately, this incident is not isolated. A number of FPA members have reported being forced to undergo uncomfortable questioning by Hamas security forces while entering or exiting Gaza in recent months.”  (Times of Israel)
