Palestinian PM calls for immediate release of Jerusalem Affairs Minister

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on Sunday called upon Israel's occupation authorities to immediately release Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Faid Hadmi, who was arrested by Israeli police from his house in the city last night.

Shtayyeh called upon the international community and the European Union to pressure Israel to release Hadmi and to condemn the Israeli policies in the holy city. He said the Israeli measures in Jerusalem, the latest of which was the arrest of Hadmi, destroy any future opportunity to engage in a political process.

The premier said despite Israel's arrest of the Jerusalem affairs minister, the government will remain committed to the welfare, development and resilience of the city's Palestinian population living under Israel's occupation.

Meanwhile, Shtayyeh condemned the recent Israeli crackdown on the neighborhood of al-Issawiya in Jerusalem, in which one Palestinian was killed and dozens of others injured or arrested.
