Israel detains Palestinian lawmaker in Salfit


SALFIT, January 22, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli forces detained on Monday Omar Abdul-Razeq, member of the Palestine Legislative Council from the Hamas-affiliated Reform and Change list, after raiding his home in the city of Salfit in the central West Bank.

Abdul Razeq, who served as finance minister in 2006, was released from Israeli jails only two months ago.

With the re-detention of Abdul Razeq, Israel is currently holing 11 Palestinian lawmakers, most kept in administrative detention without charge or trial.
