The Europian Union Representative Office in Jerusalem today condemned the Israeli occupation forces’ arrest of the Palestinian Authority’s Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Fadi al-Hidmi.

“The arrest and subsequent release today of the Minister of Jerusalem Affairs of the Palestinian Authority, Fadi al Hidmi is worrying,” said the EU in a statement.

“This was his fourth arrest since he took office in April 2019 in addition to several interrogations. It is important to work together in this crucial time to face COVID-19 while continuing our efforts to fulfill the aspirations of both parties and to find a way through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states.”
