International Middle East Media Center: Israeli forces, on Tuesday evening, detained Ramallah and al-Bireh governor Laila Ghannam while she was on her way from Jericho to Ramallah.

A statement from the governor’s office said that “Occupation forces brutally took the papers of the car carrying the governor, and stopped all cars with red (Palestinian governmental) license plates intentionally and provocatively”, Ma’an News Agency has reported.
They were released a while later, the statement added.
Ghannam said that her detention was a political message from the Israeli government to all PA leaders that Israel wants to impose its control in every way possible.
She added that targeting Palestinian leaders “in all racist ways” was an attempt to weaken the PA and publicly threaten its representatives.
