The Israeli army released on Thursday 114 Palestinians through the Kerem Shalom crossing in the southern Gaza Strip, who were arrested during the ground operation.

A Palestinian security source at the border authority in Gaza told Xinhua that some of the released Palestinians were transferred to Najjar Hospital in Rafah city due to deterioration in their health condition.

During its ground operation in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army arrested hundreds of Palestinians and transferred them to unknown locations, according to Euro-Med Human Rights monitor.

Some of the detainees, who were met by Xinhua during their presence in the hospital, said they were "beaten, humiliated, and tortured" during their detention, an allegation that has not been verified.
