OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)--
A group of Israeli occupation government policemen disguised in plain clothes kidnapped Jerusalemite MP Mohammed Abu Tir near his home in Sour Baher village, occupied Jerusalem, on Wednesday.
The security men ambushed the car of MP Ahmed Attoun and took away Abu Tair, who was in his company, to the Maskobeh detention center in occupied Jerusalem.
Khaled Abu Arafa, a former minister of Jerusalem affairs, said that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) was carrying out its threat to deport Abu Tair and other Jerusalemite MPs.
He said that the detention of Abu Tir was a clear indication that the reports about talks between the IOA and the PA in Ramallah over suspending the deportation order were not correct or to say the least inaccurate.
An Israeli police source said that Abu Tair was arrested for "illegal residence in Jerusalem", but would not say what would be the next step in dealing with the MP.
Hamas deputies denounced the detention, blaming the continued "futile negotiations" with the IOA for such a development.
They expressed confidence that the IOA banishment policy would prove its failure in the end.
