PA security forces arrest Hamas MP

The Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces Friday night arrested the member of the Palestinian Legislative Council Ibrahim Abu Salem.

This arrest of a Palestinian MP is the first of its kind since the PA decided to dissolve the Legislative Council about a month ago.

The Hamas-affiliated MP, before he was elected, was a professor at al-Quds University.

One of Marj al-Zuhur deportees, Abu Salem had been held in Israeli jails for many years.
