GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Acting speaker of the Palestinian parliament Ahmad Bahr said on Friday that a number of members of the Palestinian Legislative Council detained by Israel will be released soon.

Bahr said in a statement on the occasion of the release of Parliament member Ahmad Attoun after 18 months of detention, that detained PLC members will be released soon "whether Israel likes it or not."

Bahr hinted that the PLC members will be released in the "awaited exchange deal" expected in September as part of the long-term ceasefire negotiations with Israel.

Bahr called upon parliaments around the world and international rights organizations to actively pursue the release of parliament members, which he said would lead to greater stability in Palestine and the region.

As of July, 34 Palestinian MPs were being held in detention by Israel, 23 of whom had been arrested in a large-scale detention campaign in the West Bank following the kidnapping of three Israeli youths.
