Nablus - Ma'an - In the latest development of the deterioration in the Palestinian territories, there were two abduction operations in the occupied Palestinian West Bank, six Palestinians considered to be pro-Hamas were abducted in Nablus, including one of the companions of deputy prime minister, Nasser Eddin Ash Shaer, and a city council member.

Director of education in Nablus confirmed that unidentified men kidnapped at least two council employees and set fire to the second floor of the ministry building.

In a telephone call with Ma'an, the Al Aqsa Brigades, the main military wing of Fatah, announced responsibility for the abduction of five education directorate employees, including Samir Darwazah, the companion of the deputy PM.

In a separate incident, armed men abducted a council member, 44 year old Sheikh Fayadh Al Aghbar, from the Arab Islamic Bank in the city center, Al Aghbar is a Hamas member in the council of the city.

Eyewitnesses said that the abduction occurred after armed men shot intensively into the air minutes before the abduction, it is believed that men from the Hamas movement were responsible for the shooting.

The city of Nablus, in the northern West Bank, has witnessed strong tension between the two factions in the shadow of the continued fighting between the two movements in the Gaza Strip.

The spokesman of the Al Aqsa Brigades said to the Ma'an News Agency via telephone that the brigades "will not release the abducted people unless the Executive Force stops its attacks on Fatah members and the security forces in the [Gaza] Strip."

He threatened that "harsh measures" may be taken against the abducted people, as they represent "the first row" in the Hamas movement. The spokesman did not elaborate on his threats.

In a recent development, the Al Aqsa Brigades have now confirmed that four of the abducted people have been released, two of them in the first hour after the abduction and the other two were released later. They confirmed that only one abductee is still being held, the companion of Ash Shaer, Samir Darwazah.
