GAZA, (PIC)– The forum of Palestinian journalists strongly denounced the Palestinian authority preventive security agency for summoning journalist Suhaib Al-Asa for interrogation just one week after his release from an Israeli jail.

In a press release on Tuesday, the forum said the PA preventive security ordered Asa to go to its headquarters in Bethlehem on Wednesday morning to meet an officer dubbed as no. 500.

The Israeli occupation forces released journalist Asa on Monday after four months in prison because of his press and media activities.

It charged that the interrogation of journalist Asa confirmed further the collaboration and exchange of roles between the PA security agencies and the Israeli occupation.
