Zionist entity kidnaps Palestinian governor of al-Quds

Zionist regime forces have one again detained the Palestinian governor of al-Quds, marking the seventh time Adnan Ghaith has been arrested in less than 18 months.

According to Press TV, Palestinian local sources, requesting not to be named, said Israeli troops stormed the house of Ghaith in Silwan neighborhood on the outskirts of the Old City of al-Quds on Sunday and detained him.

A video circulating on social media showed Ghaith, wearing rubber gloves and smoking a cigarette, being escorted by Israeli forces after his arrest.

The PA official has been detained several times since his appointment as governor of al-Quds in June 2018.

Israeli forces arrested Ghaith on October 14 after carrying out a dawn raid at his home in Silwan. Pictures emerged on social media, showing heavily armed Israeli forces arresting Ghaith inside his home.

On September 25, Israeli forces summoned Ghaith to appear for questioning on suspicion of breaking Zionist entity’s law that bans activities by the Palestinian Authority in al-Quds.

Israeli authorities also presented his family with the summons and asked his son to appear before Israeli intelligence for questioning.

Israeli forces had again arrested Ghaith back on February 27. He was among 21 Palestinian officials rounded up in overnight raids in occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds, Ma’an news agency reported at the time.

Last December, Ghaith was placed under house arrest and was later banned from entering the West Bank for a six-month period.
