NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday arrested Fatah leader and preventive security officer Jamal al-Nabulsi at Zaatara checkpoint south of Nablus.
Lawmaker Naser Jomaa, who was with al-Nabulsi, told Ma’an that Israeli forces stopped them at the checkpoint on their way to Ramallah and an Israeli intelligence officer told them they were under arrest.
Jomaa said that he refused to sign any papers regarding his arrest so he was let go.
Jomaa explained that al-Nabulsi is a major in the Preventive Security Force, and he was released from Israeli jail several months ago after spending 10 years behind bars.
He declined an order to meet Israeli intelligence several days ago and informed them that they should contact the Palestinian security forces, Jomaa added.
