    giving?

    He said he was strengthening security on the streets of Jerusalem, without giving details.

    Why the word "give" is showed "+ing" form?

    Re: giving?

    What would you suggest be used instead of "giving"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: giving?

    Both "providing" and "giving" work. Both are objects (gerunds) of the preposition "without".
