Israel arrests Palestinian minister of Jerusalem affairs

Israel arrests Palestinian minister of Jerusalem affairs

Jerusalem: Israeli police say they have arrested the Palestinian minister of Jerusalem affairs for conducting political activity in east Jerusalem.

Fadi al-Hadami is charged with allegedly breaking a law prohibiting political activity in Jerusalem by the Palestinian Authority, which is based in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfled said al-Hadami was detained early Wednesday. The PA-appointed governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Gheit, is also being sought for the same offense.

Palestinian official Adnan Husseini countered that the arrest was meant to stop "social and cultural activities." Al-Hadami was last arrested on similar grounds in June.

The PA appoints officials for east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in 1967 and later annexed. But aside from some day-to-day affairs, their role is mostly symbolic, as Israel maintains full control over the city.
