    Israeli police have released the Palestinian Authority minister of Jerusalem Affairs, Fadi Hadmi, after he was arrested earlier in the day, the Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Sunday.

    Earlier in the day, the outlet reported that the police searched Hadmi's house last night before confiscating his mobile phone and arresting him.

    The Palestinian Authority’s Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh has called on the Israeli authorities to release Hadmi immediately, also asking the European Union and the international community to put pressure on Israel.

    Adnan Husseini, the former Palestinian minister of Jerusalem Affairs, has been arrested by Israeli forces several times in recent months, according to the media outlet.
