Israeli forces ransack houses of senior Fatah member, lawyer in Ramallah

 

RAMALLAH, Monday, March 18, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces ransacked the families’ houses of a senior Fatah member and a lawyer, both placed under detention, in the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Israeli military vehicles raided the Ramallah city neighborhood of Ramallah al-Tihta, where soldiers stormed the house of Zakaria Zubeidi, a member of Fatah Revolutionary Council, and interrogated him family members for several hours

Soldiers also stormed and violently searched the house of Tarek Barghout, an attorney who works for the Prisoners’ Affairs Commission, and interrogated his family members.

Zubeidi was a leading member of Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah’s armed wing, during the second intifada but was later given amnesty by Israel in a deal reached with the Palestinian Authority.

Zubeidi and Barghout have been placed in Israeli imprisonment since February 27, when they were detained by Israeli forces.
