JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police on Tuesday temporarily closed Al-Quds university offices in Jerusalem's Old City to prevent the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine from participating in a media conference.
The leftist group was due to participate in a news conference organized by the Coalition for Jerusalem to urge the PA to stop negotiations with Israel.
The Coalition for Jerusalem has started a campaign across Palestine to collect signatures in support of the PA ending peace talks.
The group said the raid by Israeli police was a violation of international law.
Israeli police chief Yohanan Danino signed an induction banning the PFLP from holding the press conference and Israeli police raided the offices and evicted dozens of participants.
