Hamas security forces on Sunday detained Palestinian journalist and satirist Ayman al-Aloul in the Gaza Strip, his wife told Ma'an.
His wife said that al-Aloul was arrested from their home by Gaza's internal security service, who also confiscated her and her husband's mobile phones and laptops.
Al-Aloul is best known for the outspoken satirical reports he publishes on Youtube, using both formal and colloquial Arabic to draw attention to the difficulties of life in the Gaza Strip.
He also works as a news editor for Arab Alaan (Arabs Now) news agency, and reports for the Iraqi al-Furat (Euphrates) television channel.
Today, after 8 days, Aloul was released.
While about 30 people in Gaza protested the arrest when it happened, the event received next to no coverage in Western media.
Reporters Without Borders didn't mention the arrest.
A Change.org petition against Hamas for arresting him garnered a measly 19 signatures.
What doesn't get reported - and why - is sometimes more important than what does.
