Israeli released from arrest after Gaza Strip protest

Wed Aug 27, 12:20 PM ET

Police on Wednesday released an Israeli they held overnight for joining international activists who sailed to the Gaza Strip in defiance of Israel's blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory.

US-born Jeff Halper, who was detained when he walked across the Erez border crossing between Gaza and Israel on Tuesday, told AFP he was freed on a 2,000 shekel (570 dollar) bond.

Halper said he was accused of violating a military order that generally bans Israelis from entering Gaza, which has been ruled since June 2007 by Hamas, a Palestinian Islamist group pledged to Israel's destruction.
