Al-Ashqar: “26 Elected Legislators Currently Imprisoned By Israel”
A Palestinian researcher, who specializes in detainees’ affairs, Riyadh al-Ashqar, reported that the number of elected Palestinian legislators currently imprisoned by Israel has risen to 26 following the abduction on Friday of the head of the Legislative Council, Dr. Aziz Dweik, and Legislator Khaled Tafesh.
Dweik was held for two hours at an Israeli military roadblock prior to being taken into custody, while Tafesh was abducted after the army broke into his home in Bethlehem, and ransacked it. Soldiers also confiscated the personal computer and the mobile phone of Tafesh.
