JERUSALEM, Sunday, June 30, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces last night arrested the Palestinian Minister of Jerusalem Affairs, Fadi al-Hadmi, after raiding his home in occupied Jerusalem.
Israeli police forces raided Hadmi’s home in middle of the night, searched it and confiscated his mobile before arresting him.
This is the first high-profile arrest by Israeli forces in an ongoing crackdown targeting the Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem during the past few days. At least 20 Palestinians were arrested and more than 70 injured in the neighborhood of al-Issawiya alone.
The former Minister of Jerusalem Affairs, Adnan Husseini, has been detained several times in recent months by Israeli authorities. The city’s Palestinian Authority-affiliated Governor, Adnan Gheith, was also detained several times and is currently undergoing house arrest.
