JERUSALEM

Israeli forces on Sunday arrested Palestine’s Jerusalem Affairs Minister Fadi Hidmi, according to a local source.

Police forces and intelligence agents raided Hidmi’s home in Jerusalem and took him into custody, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

It remains unclear why the minister was arrested.

There was no comment from Israeli authorities on the report.

Hidmi was detained by Israeli forces in September for questioning before being later released.
