Palestinian prime minister: Arrest of parliament chairman is act of piracy
Hamas has harshly condemned the arrest of Palestinian Parliament Chairman Dr Dawik, who was arrested overnight by the IDF in Ramallah.

 

Hamas said the arrest was "a stab in the back of international law, and that the senior Hamas members won't form a bargaining chip for the release of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit. Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said the arrest was "an ugly act of piracy." (Ali Waked)
