    OSLO, (PIC)-- The European Network to Support the Rights of Palestinian Prisoners (UFree) has described the Israeli arrest of Palestinian parliament speaker Dr. Aziz Dweik and another MP as “serious escalation”.

    It said in a press release on Saturday that condemnation statements were no longer valid in this case and that practical actions and pressure must be adopted on the part of international organizations and European parliaments to deter Israel.

    The Oslo-based network said that the detention of the Palestinian MPs clearly displays Israel’s violation of international laws and doctrines, which incriminate the detention of the democratically elected parliament members.

    UFree said that the detention of Dweik and MP Khaled Tafesh raised the number of Palestinian lawmakers detained in Israeli jails to 25 mostly held under the “illegal” administrative custody.
