Israeli occupation police yesterday summoned for questioning a group of Fatah activists who were released from prison on Thursday, Arab48 reported.

Palestinian Governor of Jerusalem Adnan Ghaith and nine Fatah activists were released yesterday morning on condition that they do not enter the occupied West Bank. They were also ordered to pay fines.

Senior Palestinian Authority (PA) commander, Colonel Anwar Awad, handed himself over to the Israeli occupation police in Jerusalem.

Last week, Awad’s car was ambushed by Israeli occupation forces but he was not in it. A summons was then issued for him to attend the police station.

Israeli occupation forces have been carrying out an arrest campaign against Fatah activists in Jerusalem to counter Palestinian Authority measures to arrest those found selling or transferring Palestinian properties to Israelis.
