Palestinian resistance fighters yesterday opened fire at the headquarters of the Palestinian security forces’ offices in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin following the detention of Talal Al-Husari who is wanted by the Israeli occupation, Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported.

The Palestinian resistance groups said that they targeted the headquarters of the security offices after the detention of Al-Husari, brother of martyr Abdullah Al-Husari.

Eyewitnesses said that the Protective Security Apparatus detained Al-Husari, angering the resistance fighters who opened fire at the security headquarters in the city.

Several hours later, the eyewitnesses said, the security services released Al-Husari.

Following this incident, the resistance group Jenin Brigades held a press conference during which it called for the PA to fire the officers responsible for the detention of Al-Husari.

The fighters condemned the detention of Al-Husari calling it a “despicable assault”, stressing that “all the justifications that are being woven against our fighters will not go unnoticed.”
