NABLUS, (PIC)– Some ten of Hamas’s supporters in the West Bank have been arrested in the past few days as the Palestinian Authority security forces continue to breach the unity deal signed by parties governing the mending Palestinian territories.

On Sunday, PA intelligence in Nablus governorate arrested three men in Aqraba and one in Awarta after they refused to respond to inconvenient summonses. Another man who served time in Israeli custody was also nabbed in Tulkarem.

In Ramallah governorate, the security agencies arrested the son of Palestinian legislator Mahmoud Musleh as well as one other man.

In addition, two men were nabbed in Al-Khalil just a week after they were released from Israeli custody.

The arrests also targeted local reporters. Reporter and director of a local television network Ahmed Mohammed al-Halayka, 25, was released on Wednesday after he was arrested and one of the channel’s crews were banned from filming a day earlier.

There are also reports of prisoners being transferred between security agencies and prisons.
