RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The security apparatuses loyal to the Ramallah authority summoned more than 1,500 Hamas supporters and cadres and kidnapped 135 of them in the past month of February, Hamas said in a press release in the West Bank on Tuesday.

The movement added that the illegal Ramallah courts passed prison sentences against 17 of those kidnapped.

It noted that the Fatah-controlled authority continued to target West Bank universities, kidnapping two university professors and 24 students in February other than tens of daily summonses.

Hamas pointed out that the arrests targeted various other sectors in the society including 9 teachers, 8 members or chairs of local councils, 5 engineers, a journalist, a doctor, a pharmacist, and a lawyer.

The movement underlined that the torture rounds by those apparatus continued in February, citing the fact that five detainees were rushed to hospitals in that month.
