Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, accused the Palestinian Security Forces loyal to Fateh movement in the West Bank of arresting seven Hamas members and supporters. Hamas added that detained members were arrested in the districts of Bethlehem, Nablus, Hebron and Salfit.

The movement held Fateh and its security forces responsible for the lives of the political prisoners, and demanded an immediate stop to all violations against the movement, its members and its institutions.

It added that political arrests and the ongoing torture of political prisoners are obstructing unity talks.
