OCCUPIED-AL-QUDS: Israeli police arrested the Palestinian governor of Occupied-Al-Quds 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. His lawyer Mohammed Mahmud said he had been given a six-month order not to visit the occupied West Bank or contact certain people there, and police accused him of violating the order.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld confirmed Gheith had been arrested and was being questioned, but could not provide further details.

Police had previously investigated Gheith over suspicions he was involved in the Palestinian Authority’s arrest in October of American-Palestinian Issam Akel, who was accused of involvement in selling an east Occupied Al-Quds building to Jewish buyers.
