Israeli forces detain 12 PFLP leaders in West Bank

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 12 leaders from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine overnight Monday, sources in the group told Ma'an.

Ahmad al-Haj Muhammad Abu al-Nimr and Zahi Khatatba were detained in the Nablus town of Furik, while Kamal Ibrahim Abu Tharifa, Youssef Abd al-Haq Abu Shaddad and Moussa Salama were arrested in Nablus.

Amjad Hamayil, 37, was arrested from his house in Beta during a raid.

In Jenin, Israeli forces detained Fadaa al-Zugheibi, Muhammad al-Zugheibi, Abdullah al-Afif, Alam Sami Masad and Jaafar Abu Salah.

Mustafa Orabi Nakhla, or Abu Wadee, was detained from al-Jalazun refugee camp in northern Ramallah.

The arrests of PFLP political leaders come a week after a senior official from the party was issued an order by Israel to leave Ramallah.

Khalida Jarrar told Ma'an that dozens of soldiers raided her house in Ramallah last week and delivered a deportation order "by an Israeli court" to Jericho for an unspecified period of time.

She said the order was in Hebrew and that she refused to sign it when soldiers told her to, and that she was also provided a map for her movement inside Jericho.

Jarrar added that the raid was a form of house arrest and that she was given 24 hours to move out of Ramallah to Jericho.
