International NGO members detained by Hamas

Palestine Press Agency reports that Hamas arrested a number of the members of the Cooperative Housing Foundation International (CHF) NGO.

According to the report, five members were arrested and forced to sign pledges that they would not continue operations.

PalPress reported last month that Hamas had shut down the NGO.

The CHF website has nothing on the issue, although its last press release from Gaza pre-dates the report of its closing down.
