Fuad Al-Khuffash, head of the Ahrar Center, stated that Israel is deliberately kidnapping the legislators, releases some and kidnaps them again, similar to what it did with Minister Wasfi Qabha, and legislators Mahmoud Ar-Ramahi and Mohammad An-Natsha.

Al-Khuffash said that most of the imprisoned legislators are elderly and suffer various health issues, and that they are not receiving the needed medical attention in prison.

Al-Khuffash added that the imprisoned legislators are; Yasser Mansour, Ahmad Attoun, Mohammad Totah, Marwan Barghouthi, Mohammad An-Natsha, Ahmad Saadat, Mahmoud Ar-Ramahi, Fathi Qar’awy, Imad Nofal, Bassem Az-Zaareer, Hatem Qfeisha, Mohammad At-Tell, Hasan Yousef, and that the detained legislators are Wasfi Qabha and Khaled Abu Arafa.

He further stated that all legal and human rights groups must act on the international level to secure the release of all elected legislators, ministers and officials, and to end the ongoing Israeli violations against the Palestinians and their elected representatives.
