NABLUS (PIC) 31 July -- Two Najah University students as well as the wife of a West Bank political prisoner were arrested on Saturday as Palestinian Authority security agencies continue to politically persecute Hamas supporters in the West Bank. The students, Ala Saud Taha, 26, and Mohammed Jamal Khatir, 26, had previously declared their refusal to respond to summonses directed at them by the West Bank security agencies, the last summons taking place about a week ago. Both men had been previously detained by Israel security agencies and those of the PA.
Separately, Hammed al-Katout was released a few hours after he was arrested in Nablus for taking part in a sit-in protesting the PA's taking of political prisoners.

Also on Saturday, preventative security forces arrested the wife of political prisoner Anas Rasras after she visited her husband in the security prison in Al-Dhahiriyya south of Al-Khalil city. She was questioned and held for four hours but later released. She was questioned on her husband and on her participation in protests in Al-Khalil against political detention.
