Addamiri: Hizb Attahrir is banned in W. Bank

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Spokesman for the Palestinian authority’s security militias Adnan Addamiri said Monday that the Palestinian organisation of Hizb Attahrir is banned and not allowed to get involved in any activity in the West Bank.

Addamiri told Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper that Hizb Attahrir was banned because it does not recognize the Palestinian regime in the West Bank and verbally attacks all PA institutions, claiming that this faction also does not recognize the Palestinian flag and the national anthem.

Hizb Attahrir had said that the PA militias kidnapped a 100 of its cadres during last week and also detained some families of its cadres in order to pressure them to turn themselves in.

In another context, secretary-general of Al-Ahrar Movement Khaled Abu Hilal stated that the PA’s persistence in detaining and torturing Palestinian resistance fighters is aimed at dispersing the Palestinian people’s efforts and distracting them from confronting the crimes committed against them by the Israeli occupation.

Abu Hilal made his remarks on Sunday during a sit-in held outside the Palestinian legislative council (PLC) in solidarity with the political detainees in PA jails.

He underlined in his speech that the intelligence apparatus was mainly created to protect the citizens from any external threats, but when this apparatus turns into a security contractor, its members become militia men hostile to the Palestinian people.

Al-Ahrar official urged in this regard the PLC to enact a law classifying the security apparatuses as illegal militias.

In a ceremony held yesterday in Gaza to honor some security officers, Palestinian minister of interior Fathi Hammad stated that his ministry affords all Palestinian factions and forces plenty of elbow room to hold their activities and events without any restrictions and according to the law.

Hammad underscored that his ministry needs the cooperation of all factions in order to provide security protection necessary for holding their activities and events without any distrubances.
