The Palestinian Authority (PA)’s intelligence yesterday arrested Quds Press reporter, Thaer Al-Fakhouri, after he was summoned for interrogation in the southern occupied city of Hebron.
The agency reported that Al-Fakhouri, 33, was summoned on Thursday morning, adding that he was “arrested after he arrived at the Palestinian intellegence headquarters in Hebron.”
Al-Fakhouri is the brother of the Palestinian martyr Fadi Al-Fakhouri. He is married and a father of a young boy and girl. He suffers from problems with his kidney after he carried out a hunger strike for 55 days while in jail in Israel.
His arrest comes two days after Israeli occupation forces detained another Quds Press reporter, Amer Abu Arafa, in Hebron.
