CAIRO, (PIC)– Grand Sheik of Cairo’s Al-Azhar university and mosque Ahmed Attayb called on de facto president Mahmoud Abbas to end the political arrest and torture of citizens in the West Bank, to protect the Palestinian constants and to end the division with his rivals to strengthen the internal front.

During his meeting with Palestinian officials in the West Bank, Sheikh Attayb denounced the Palestinian authority (PA) for closing the Qur’an radio station in Nablus city and warned that such step hurts the feelings of Muslims.

The Egyptian scholar also appealed to the whole world to stand firm against Israel violations against the Islamic and Christian holy sites in occupied Palestine and stressed that the Arabs should pressure the international decision-makers to put an end to Israel’s settlement and Judaization activities in occupied Jerusalem.

In another context, Hamas lawmakers deplored Israel for kidnapping the son of MP Mahmoud Al-Ramhi and appealed to the Arab and international parliaments to move to defend the Palestinian lawmakers and expose the violations committed against them. MP Ramahi is detained in an Israeli occupation jail.

A force of Israeli troops stormed last night Al-Bireh town, near Ramallah city, and kidnapped Mohamed, the son of MP Ramhi, during a violent raid on his home.

In a separate incident, the PA security militias kidnapped in new arrest campaigns in the cities of Al-Khalil, Nablus, Jenin, Tulkarem and Salfit 15 Palestinian citizens affiliated with Hamas Movement, according to local sources on Thursday.

A PA military court also issued imprisonment sentences extending from 6 to 10 yeas against three political detainees from Hamas from Al-Fawwar refugee camp, southwest of Al-Khalil city. The court decisions were issued abruptly and without the knowledge of these prisoners and their families.
