PA summons Hamas affiliates for interrogation

12:00 Aug 30 2013 Sair, Ras Atiya, Amatin

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority security forces detained four Hamas members in the West Bank, Hamas said Friday.

PA forces detained four Hamas-affiliated teachers who work at a school in Yatta, south of Hebron, Hamas said in a statement.

Forces from the Fatah-led PA also summoned several Hamas affiliates, including a former prisoner of Israel from Sair village, a young man from Ras Attiya village near Qalqiliya and the Imam of a mosque in Amatin village, Hamas said.

Samer al-Masri, a Hamas leader at Birzeit University, is on his fifth day of hunger strike in a PA jail to protest his detention, according to Hamas.

Meanwhile, a Hamas-affiliated university student from Palestine Polytechnic University has been jailed since Tuesday. He previously spent time in Israeli jails.

Fatah accuses Hamas of detaining its members and leaders in the Gaza Strip.

Both parties have agreed to end political detentions in reconciliation agreements that have yet to be implemented.
