Israeli forces detain Palestinian Governor of Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained the Palestinian Governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Ghaith, on Wednesday morning, after raiding his home in the Silwan neighborhood, in occupied East Jerusalem.

Lawyer Muhammad Mahmoud told Ma'an that Israeli intelligence and special forces raided Ghaith's home and transferred him to the Russian compound police center.

Israeli forces had previously detained Ghaith several times, the last of which was in last November. However, Israeli forces had also raided and searched Ghaith's home in December.

Last December, the Israeli authorities had also banned Gaith from entering the West Bank for six months and from travelling outside Palestine.
