At 4:30 pm on Friday in Port Harcourt Rivers state,
Jerusalem governor Adnan Ghaith was arrested by the Israeli on Sunday as the Palestinian government raises alarm over his arrest.
The Palestinian Government through its spoke person Yousuf al-Mahmoud said: “The governor’s arrest is part of Israel’s continued policy of targeting the occupied city, its people and holy sites,”
The Israeli military gave no reason for his arrest.
But Yousuf al-Mahmoud said the Israeli government are “seeking to impose its hegemony and creating the impression that it has the upper hand in Jerusalem”.
He added: “Jerusalem represents a symbol of existence and survival in the Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic conscience.”
Palestinians are trying to make East Jerusalem their capital with has being occupied by Israel for over four decades. The area has been causing a serious trade war between the US and other countries. Trump wants to make Jerusalem the Capital of Israel while many countries are opposing it as some are proposing a two-state solution.
Jewish settlement around the Westbank and East Jerusalem have been viewed as illegal to the international communities. But the US has made it near impossible for the evacuation of Jewish settlement there because of their close tie with Israel.
