IDF soldiers arrested former Fatah Governor of Jenin, Talal Dweikat, at his home in the city of Shechem (Nablus) early Wednesday, after a search of his home.

The arrest came in response to intelligence information that Dweikat was involved in activity related to weapons, and followed the arrest of his son by two days.

Dweikat is a member of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, which leads the Palestinian Authority from Ramallah.

He told PA media that the arrest of senior Fatah members would “only strengthen the movement” and its ongoing efforts “for freedom and independence.”
