  Twelve Palestinian parliamentarians jailed by Israeli occupation

January 2, 2018
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Israeli occupation forces continued their ongoing campaigns of raids and 
arrests targeting the Palestinian civilian population under occupation 
as the new year dawned on 1 January 2018, including the seizure of 
Palestinian Legislative Council member *Nasser Abdel-Jawad*in a pre-dawn 
raid on his home <http://asramedia.ps/post/5697/> in the village of Deir 
Ballut near Salfit. Abdel-Jawad, 50, is now the 12th Palestinian 
parliamentarian jailed by Israeli occupation forces, just days after the 
Israeli military issued a second six-month detention order against 
leftist parliamentarian and Palestinian national leader *Khalida Jarrar*

Abdel-Jawad returned from abroad two weeks ago after completing his 
Ph.D. in Malaysia, reported Asra Voice radio

the Change and Reform Bloc associated with the Hamas movement. He 
previously spent over 16 years in Israeli prisons.
