WEST BANK, (PIC)– Some families of political detainees in the West Bank said that de facto president Mahmoud Abbas should prove that his intention to end the inter-Palestinian division is sincere through releasing their relatives from his jails.

A spokesman for the families said that the news of arresting four West Bankers and summoning many others on Thursday morning by security militias from the Palestinian authority (PA) augmented their fears and doubts about Abbas’s seriousness about the national reconciliation.

The spokesman stated that the PA’s persistence in its political arrest campaign and security cooperation with the Israeli occupation would dismantle the Palestinian society and must be stopped.

He stressed that Abbas should provide the atmosphere for the national reconciliation and stop fueling the division through releasing all political detainees from his prisons.

According to local sources on Thursday morning, the PA security militias kidnapped four Palestinians affiliated with Hamas in the cities of Nablus and Al-Khalil and summoned many others for interrogation.
