The PLO on Wednesday harshly criticized Israel's detention of the Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, for his alleged involvement in riots at the Temple Mount on Tuesday.

Adnan Husseini, the Palestinian Authority-appointed governor of Jerusalem and a former head of the Wakf, said of Hussein's detention: "While gangs of settlers terrorize Palestinian families all over the city, Occupation forces arrest [the] Mufti of Jerusalem.”

Husseini stated that the Palestinian leadership denounces Israel’s "illegal
detention" of the mufti and calls for his immediate release.
