BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Tuesday accused the Palestinian Authority of detaining eight party affiliates across the West Bank.
PA forces detained eight Hamas members in Tulkarem, Nablus and Jenin, a Hamas statement said.
Hamas signed a reconciliation agreement with Fatah, which leads the PA, in May 2011. Under the deal, both parties agreed to stop political detentions.
