Israel Detains Hamas Lawmaker

Hamas legislator Samir al-Qadi was detained on Thursday after the forces stormed his house in the village of Sorif, Palestinian security sources were quoted as saying by Xinhua.

He has been the 15th Hamas lawmaker to have been jailed by Israeli forces since October 2010, and the 6th caught after Hamas signed a reconciliation agreement with Palestinian party Fatah.

Fatah and Hamas announced their readiness on Tuesday to unveil a national unity government following a dispute over naming a premier.

Acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Meshaal are now set to finalize the formation of a new unity administration in the Egyptian capital Cairo on June 21.

According to Palestinian security sources, the Hamas legislator had previously spent three and a half years in an Israeli jail before being released in November 2009 along with several other West Bank lawmakers including the speaker of the Palestinian parliament Aziz Dweik.

Al-Qadi was arrested earlier in 2006 in the wake of cross-border clashes between Palestinian fighters and Israeli troops southeast of the Gaza Strip.

Some 17 Palestinian lawmakers are currently in Israeli prisons, with the majority of them belonging to Hamas.
