RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday arrested liberated prisoner Omar Al-Barghouthi, the brother of the longest serving Palestinian prisoner in occupation jails, only few days after his release from PA detention.
Local sources told the PIC that IOF troops had stormed the house of Barghouthi in Kuwair town, Ramallah district, after midnight a few days ago but did not find him and left him a summons to Beit El on Sunday. He went there and was arrested.
The PA in Ramallah had released Omar only a few days ago after his brother Na'el, who is still being held in occupation jails for 33 years, and his cousin Fakhri, the longest serving Fatah prisoner, and his son Shadi, who is serving 29 years sentence, declared a hunger strike in protest over his detention in PA jails.
Omar was recently released from occupation prisons after serving 22 years in captivity and his detention by the PA then the IOF reflected the growing security coordination between the two parties.
