NABLUS, (PIC)– Security militias loyal to de facto president and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas rounded up seven supporters of the Hamas movement in the districts of Al-Khalil, Nablus, Jenin, Salfit, and Qalqilia over the past 24 hours, local sources reported.

Sources related to the detained journalist Sami Al-Asy in Nablus said that he was subjected to severe torture during interrogation by elements of those militias and that his family members were not allowed to visit him.

The intelligence militia in Al-Khalil released Husam Rubin to attend the burial of his father, who died yesterday, on condition that he should turn himself in after the three days of mourning.

Relatives of Khaled Dadu in Bethlehem district, who was detained two weeks ago, said that he had undergone cardiac catheterization on Saturday and was returned immediately after the operation to the preventive security dungeons.

The Fatah-controlled PLO, meanwhile, decided to cut monthly allowance to the popular front for the liberation of Palestine for criticizing negotiations and security coordination with Israel.

The PFLP said that the sum, 90,000 dollars, was its right and the decision proved that the PLO was in need of restructuring.

PFLP MP Khaleda Jarrar said in a press statement that the step would not weaken its determination or change its political positions, describing the cut as “political blackmail” especially when the PFLP had suspended its membership in the PLO’s executive committee soon after it decided to engage in direct talks with Israel.
