PA security services 'brutally' arrest Fatah MP in West Bank

On Friday, Palestinian Authority (PA) security services "brutally and barbarically" arrested Fatah MP Husam Khader from his house in the West Bank city of Nablus, his daughter, Amira Khader, revealed.

On her Twitter page, Amira Khader announced: "[PA] Protective Security Services broke into our house, accompanied by the Joint Forces (formed to crackdown on Abbas foes) in Balata Refugee Camp [in Nablus] and took my father forcefully."

She added: "They took my father brutally and barbarically. I saw this brutality and barbarism in 2003 and 2011, when the Israeli occupation forces broke into our house and arrested my father. They attacked me as two armed officers prevented me from moving, pushed me and beat me."

Abuse, Oppression and Murder: The PA Does Israel's Dirty Work in the West Bank

Khader's detention came following his criticism of PA President Mahmoud Abbas's criticism of Palestinian doctors, who have been on industrial strike.

Khader stated that the abuse and "dirty insults" should disqualify Abbas as president and called for him to apologise to the doctors.
