Israel-PA security integration
“The abduction of Omar Al Barghouthi comes in the context of conspiracy between the [Palestinian] Authority and [Israel] to go back to negotiations without any sanctions taken against the enemy on the regional and Arab level,” the Hamas spokesman added.
The arrest confirms the extent of the full security integration between the Fatah authority and the Israelis in detaining Palestinians and attempting to break the wills of captives by taking vengeance on their family members, Barhoum went on to say.
Hamas lawmakers in the West Bank condemned Barghouthi’s arrest, calling on the Fatah movement and the PA to fight against the security coordination, asserting that it poses a threat to the existence of Palestinians in PA-controlled territories.
On a similar context, the Hamas MPs also condemned the PA intelligence arrest of Islamic preacher Majid Hassan, who was taken two weeks after his release from Israeli prison after serving three years in administrative detention.
Hassan’s wife Nada Al Jayyousi has also been harassed and threatened to be arrested on several occasions.
PA security forces have begun to take turns with Israeli security forces targeting Palestinians in the West Bank, each party arresting detainees released from the other’s custody, the West Bank officials said.
The lawmakers commented that the continued targeting of ex-detainees is a disgrace on those who arrest them, “a stab in the back” against prisoners and the Palestinian history and cause, and disregard of the sacrifices they have made.
