Print PDF

Israeli police arrested on Monday the former minister of Jerusalem Affairs Khaled Abu Arafeh and the Palestinian lawmaker Muhammad Toutah from inside the headquarters of the International Committee of Red Cross in Sheikh Jarrah.

Both have been holding a sit-in since July 1, 2010 to protest plans of Israeli occupation authorities to deport them from their places of residency in Jerusalem after revoking their residency rights in Jerusalem.

Some 25 members of the police unit, Musta'ribeen (disguised as Arabs) raided the headquarters of the international organization and arrested four Palestinians including the two slated for deportation from Jerusalem. During the raid, Israeli police confiscated their cell phones, computers and other personal belongings.

According to spokeswoman of ICRC Nadia Dibsi, the raid took place at around 1:15 p.m. without any previous notice to the ICRC.

She reminded that ICRC enjoys international immunity, a fact that was denied by Israeli police spokesman, Micky Rosenfield who announced that the Red Cross compound does not provide diplomatic immunity. However, under Art. 4 of the fourth Geneva Convention, Palestinians are considered as protected persons.

On September 26, the Musta'aribeen Unit arrested lawmaker Ahmad Atoun and was later deported to Ramallah. Israeli police accused the detainees of affiliation with Hamas.
