WEST BANK, (PIC)– The Palestinian authority security apparatuses kidnapped three Palestinians affiliated with Hamas and summoned for interrogation eight others during the last few days in different West Bank areas.

In Salfit city, the PA preventive security agency detained senior Hamas official Fathi Al-Hayek after summoning him for interrogation, according to local sources.

The preventive security in Tubas also detained a father of a student at Al-Najah university for several hours to pressure his son Abdullah Odeh to turn himself in after he had declined a summons for interrogation.

In Ramallah, the PA intelligence agency kidnapped Ziyad Naser, a 35-year old young man from Deir Qadis town. He is the brother of senior Hamas member Riyadh Naser, who was released several weeks ago from an Israeli jail.

His family said that the intelligence used a gang style to kidnap its son Ziyad, who works as a satellite TV technician, affirming that a man phoned him for a repair service, but when he arrived at the specified place, gunmen from the intelligence were waiting for him.

Ziyad, a father of two children, had received many summonses from the intelligence agency, but he refused to respond to them.

His family said that its son has been exposed to severe torture at the hands of the PA intelligence interrogators since his detention and held the intelligence fully responsible for his life.

The PA security apparatuses also summoned for interrogation eight others in different West Bank areas, among them three students at Al-Quds university.

The Islamic student bloc at the university, in turn, strongly denounced the arbitrary detention of students, especially during the season of the summer final exams, and called on all university students not to respond to summonses issued by the PA or Israeli security apparatuses.
