Images on social media show detained men semi-naked
Senior Hamas official condemns Israeli forces over images
Israel says men were in areas they were told to evacuate

CAIRO, Dec 8 (Reuters) – Palestinian, Arab and Muslim officials condemned Israel on Friday after images of detained Palestinian men stripped to their underwear in Gaza circulated on social media.

Senior official of the Palestinian Islamist Hamas group, Izzat El-Reshiq, accused Israel of “carrying a “heinous crime against innocent civilians.”

Reshiq, who is in exile abroad, urged international human rights organisations to intervene to show what happened to the men and help secure their release.
