GAZA, (PIC)– The Hamas Movement said it is extremely concerned about the recent political arrest and interrogation campaign that was waged by the Palestinian authority security forces against its cadres and supporters in the west Bank, especially in Nablus city.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum stated in a press release that these acts by the PA security forces contravened the freedoms commission’s resolutions and recommendations which Fatah faction had signed in Cairo on May 20, and reflected that Fatah flouted its agreement with Hamas.

Spokesman Barhoum stressed that these ferocious attacks on Hamas cadres in the West Bank coincided with the arrival of the new US security coordinator Paul Bushong and the preparations being made for the upcoming meeting between Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli deputy premier Shaul Mofaz.

The spokesman demanded Fatah not to tamper with the future of the Palestinian reconciliation and to stop wagering on foreign agendas that are detrimental to the Palestinian cause.

The spokesman urged the West Bank people, Muslim scholars, dignitaries and intellectuals to form a pressure group against the PA forcing it to stop its violations against the citizens and hasten to end the division in the Palestinian arena.

In a related incident, the PA security forces arrested on Monday four Palestinians affiliated with Hamas and summoned two others in the cities of Qalqiliya, Nablus, Salfit and Tulkarem.

Among those who were summoned for interrogation were the former mayor of Bidya town Mustafa Shatat and the imam of Omar Mosque in Qarawat Bani Hassan village Marei Hammam.
