Israel Arrests Palestinian Authority Yerushalayim District Chief


Israeli police arrested the Palestinian Authority’s governor of the Yerushalayim district on Sunday after he allegedly violated an order previously given to him by authorities, police and his lawyer said.

The governor, Adnan Gheith, has been arrested several times in recent months in connection with an investigation related to a land sale.

Police had previously investigated Gheith over suspicions he was involved in the Palestinian Authority’s kidnapping in October of American-Arab Issam Akel, who was accused of involvement in selling an eastern Jerusalem building to Jewish buyers.
