Hamas: PA arrested 1,000 party members last month

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas said Thursday that Palestinian Authority security forces arrested 1,008 party members in September.

"It’s clear that the arrest campaign being waged by the Palestinian Authority did not exclude anyone and did take into consideration the circumstances and titles of the people being arrested, whether they were former detainees from Israeli jails, university professors, teachers, or members of city councils and other categories."

The movement accused the government in Ramallah of dismissing employees due to political affiliation including eight teachers; five from Nablus, two from Jenin, and one each from Hebron and Salfit.
