    WEST BANK, (PIC)-- The PA security apparatuses continued to arrest and summon activists in the West Bank. Three were arrested in Ramallah, Bethlehem and Nablus and a fourth was summoned in Tulkarem. The IOF also arrested two activists who were released from PA jails.

    In the Bethlehem district, the “Preventive Security” arrested university student Mahmoud Ghunaim from the village of Khader after he responded to a summons for interrogation.

    Local sources say that the Magistrates court in Bethlehem extended his detention for 15 days for interrogation.

    In Nablus the PA General Intelligence (Mukhabarat) arrested Saleh Amer from the village of Kafer Qallil to the south of the city.

    In Tulkarem, meanwhile, the Mukhabarat summoned Hammam Attili from the village of Attil to the north of the city. He declared that he will not answer the summons because it was illegal and it contradicts with what was agreed in the national reconciliation agreement.

    GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas spokesman Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri has called on Fatah faction, which is controlling the West Bank, to abide by recommendations of the freedoms committee and to stop political arrests in order to prepare the atmosphere for holding elections.

    He told the PIC in a statement on Sunday that providing free atmosphere, without pressures and arrests, was a must in order to move on to elections.

    Abu Zuhri rejected Fatah accusation that Hamas was obstructing reconciliation by refusing to allow the central elections committee in Gaza to proceed in registering the electorate, adding that Hamas opened the committee’s premises. He explained, however, that turning to the registration procedure is considered part of the election process.

    It is not reasonable to hold elections while political arrests are still rampant in the West Bank amidst restrictions on political and media freedoms and closure of institutions and refusal to release detainees.

    Other stories claim Iran blocked unification by buying off Haniyeh and Zahar after Meshal tried to free Hamas from Iran's clutches.

    So that is why Abbas is still arresting political opponents in the West Bank.

    No, he's arresting activists (Paltalk for terrorists) and dozens of Hamas supporters (Paltalk for terrorists) because they are not following his terrorist plan. They're after him because he's not following their terrorist plan.

    But it all boils down to terrorism.
