Press release on political arrests in the West Bank by PA

27 October, 19

The escalating surge of political arrests in the West Bank by Palestinian Authority-affiliated security forces highlights that the PA insists to adopt a suppressive policy against the Palestinian people.

Political arrests and PA-adopted policy of suppressing freedoms in the West Bank widen the Palestinian division and fragment the Palestinian social structure. Indeed, the PA’s suppressive policies serve the Israeli occupation only.

Hamas confirms that the PA must stop its demeanor of suppressing media and political freedoms. All the Palestinian people should tackle the PA security forces together.
