LONDON, (PIC)– The Arab organization for human rights in Britain strongly denounced the Palestinian authority security forces for carrying out massive arrests among its citizens in the West Bank.

In a press release on Wednesday, the organization demanded the PA and its security forces to immediately end and prohibit the political arrest campaigns in the West Bank and side with the rights of the Palestinian people.

The British Arab organization also appealed to European union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and the secretary-generals of the Arab League and the organization of Islamic cooperation to pressure the PA to end its political arrests and release the detainees.

The Arab organization noted that the PA security forces launched during the last two days frenzied arrest and interrogation campaign in the West Bank and more than 100 citizens were reportedly arrested or summoned abruptly and without reason.
