Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh called today upon the Israeli occupation authorities to immediate release the Minister of Jerusalem Affairs, Faid Hadmi, who was arrested by Israeli police from his house in the city last night.
Shtayyeh called upon the international community and the European Union to pressure ‘Israel’ to release Hadmi and to condemn the Israeli policies in the holy city. He said the latest Israeli measures in Jerusalem, the latest of which was the arrest of Hadmi, destroy any future opportunity to engage in a political process.
Israeli forces last night arrested at least 10 Palestinians after raiding their homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya and the town of Abu Dis, east of the city.
