Israeli forces detained Jerusalem Affairs Minister Fadi al-Hadami of the Palestinian Authority on Wednesday, according to an official statement, reports Anadolu Agency.

In a statement, the Jerusalem Affairs Ministry said Israeli forces raided the minister’s home and searched it before taking him into custody.

There was no comment from the Israeli military on the arrest.

This is the second time Israeli forces arrested the Jerusalem minister in the last three months.

Israeli forces have escalated their actions against Palestinian activities in Jerusalem since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized the occupied city as Israel’s capital in 2017.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the decades-long Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem – occupied by Israel since 1967 – might one day serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.

  1. I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that Israel knows that it can arrest any Palestinian Gov’t official like Jerusalem Affairs Minister,Fadi al-Hadami without any reason and get away with it because the reactionary Gov’ts of Canada,USA and the EU supports whatever crimes Israel commits against Palestinian Gov’t Officials.Without the support by these reactionary western Gov’ts Israel wouldn’t survive.Israel didn’t exist before 1948 and it only exists now because it benefits these western Gov’ts.Israel certainly don’t benefit the Palestinian People.
