Israel Detains Female Palestinian MP

Israeli forces detained a female Palestinian lawmaker in the occupied West Bank on Sunday.  Khalida Jarrar, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was arrested from her home in Ramallah city, according to her daughter, Anadolu reported. “At least 10 Israeli soldiers raided the house at dawn, arrested my mother and took her to an unknown location,” her daughter Yafa said.  Israel’s occupation army said Jarrar was detained on suspicion of involvement in terrorist activities and violent public disturbances.  “Her arrest had nothing to do with her membership in the Palestinian Legislative Council,” the military said in a statement.  The PFLP, for its part, said Jarrar’s detention “reflects the confusion of the Israeli occupation”.  “The arrest follows a campaign of incitement launched by the Israeli government against PFLP and the resistance factions,” it said in a statement.
