The Islamic Jihad movement condemned the arrests carried out by the Israeli army against its members in the West Bank.

Ra’ed abu al-Majd, the media spokesperson of the movement, who is also a political detainee imprisoned by the Palestinian Authority in Jericho, said that the arrests carried out by the army in the West Bank, and the repeated invasions, show the real intentions of Israel of maintaining it control and attacks in the Palestinian areas.

“The attacks carried out by the Sharon government are carried out while the whole world is talking about the unilateral disengagement”, abu al-Majd said, “We welcome any withdrawal from our land, but our people should be alerted of any possible attack which might be carried out by the army in the West Bank during this period”.

Most of the arrests carried out against members of the Islamic Jihad were concentrated in Hebron and Bethlehem areas, in addition to arresting the media spokesperson of the movement in Ramallah.
