BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian intelligence forces arrested a Palestinian man on Sunday from Hebron city in the southern occupied West Bank, after the man hosted the ultra-nationalist Israeli parliament member Yehuda Glick in his home during the recent Eid al-Adha holiday.

Sources in the Palestinian Authority (PA)’s General Intelligence agency told Ma'an that Muhammad Sabir Jabir from Hebron was detained over hosting Glick. It remained unclear of what crime he stands accused or if he would face charges.

Meanwhile, members of Jabir’s extended family published a statement on Facebook saying that they “disassociated” themselves from Muhammad after he hosted the right-wing politician, who is an outspoken proponent for allowing Jewish prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, where he regularly visits.

Prior to being instated in Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, Glick had commonly taken to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound with ultra-nationalist Israelis to perform rituals and prayers at the site, a practice Palestinians say is an attempt to challenge long-standing international agreements regarding the holy site.

Glick had posted photos on his Facebook on Sept. 3, showing him celebrating the Muslim holiday with the immediate family of Muhammad Jabir in Hebron, writing: "Feast of Sacrifice (Eid al-Adha) at home of my friend Muhammad Jabir in Hebron. God willing we will all live here in peace. Happy Eid." Glick wrote on his Facebook in Hebrew. He also wrote in Arabic "Happy Eid al-Adha Muhammad Jabir."
