BEIRUT, GAZA, TUBAS, (PIC)– Member of the political bureau of Hamas Ezzat Resheq condemned the campaign of arrests waged against the leaders and cadres of the movement in the West Bank on Sunday night.

Resheq said in statements published on his Facebook page on Monday “the detention of the MPs and the Hamas leaders in Nablus and al-Khalil confirms the state of confusion and panic experienced by the occupation leaders.”

He pointed out that the campaign of arrests comes as a result of the crime of security coordination between the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and the occupation state.

The occupation forces announced the arrest of 20 Palestinians in Jenin, Nablus, Tulkarem and al-Khalil on Sunday night, including a number of leaders and cadres of Hamas, two MPs from the Change and Reform Bloc and more than ten members of the Islamic bloc at An-Najah National University.

The Palestinian Legislative Council appealed to Arab and Islamic countries, the Arab League and the Organization of the Islamic Conference to immediately intervene “to protect the Palestinian elected representatives from the Israeli racist policy”, and called on the Palestinians and Arabs to unite their ranks to confront the occupation plans.

Ahmed Bahar, First Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, condemned in a press statement the abduction of the MPs, and stressed that “this policy constitutes a flagrant violation of all international treaties and conventions, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention.”

Bahar considered that kidnapping the MPs “represents a continuation of the occupation schemes to disrupt the work of the Palestinian Legislative Council”, and held the occupation fully responsible for the consequences of this arrests campaign.

He called on all the ​​members of the Legislative Council to attend the Council meetings, and to actively contribute in advancing the Palestinian reconciliation process.

For his part, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a statement on Monday that the campaign of arrests “came in the framework of the American-Israeli coordination with the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and aimed to create disruption in the Palestinian equation to ensure strengthening one party over another.”

Barhoum stressed that these arrests will not deter Hamas and its supporters from adopting the choice of resistance in the defense of the people, the land and the holy places, adding that it will accelerate the outbreak of a Palestinian Intifada and revolution.”

Meanwhile, the Hamas leader in the West Bank Faze’ Sawaftah condemned in remarks “the wide and fierce campaign of arrests” which targeted the movement leaders at dawn Monday.

He pointed out that this campaign came in an attempt “to calm down the Israeli angry street following the occupation government’s decision to release a group of veteran prisoners who had been arrested before the Oslo agreement.”

Sawaftah stressed that this campaign of arrests will never undermine the determination of the members of Hamas movement.
