Juma Ibrahim Abu Ranim (19) has been identified as the Israeli who was spotted crossing the border into Gaza Tuesday afternoon, it was announced on Wednesday following the lifting of a gag order.

Abu Ranim is a resident of the unrecognized Beduin village Hashim-Zina in the Negev area.

"We in the family are all heartbroken, we have no family or friends in Gaza so we have no idea what he was looking for there," said his brother Haled, adding that Juma was a confused and shy young man.



Haled said that Hamas should understand that his brother is not in his right state of mind and did what he did in order to get attention.
