A Palestinian journalist from the West Bank complained Tuesday that Palestinian Authority security forces have been harassing him ever since he visited Qatar.

The journalist, Tarek al-Sarkaji, said that if visiting Qatar were a crime in the eyes of the PA security forces, then they should also arrest PA President Mahmoud Abbas for visiting the Gulf country.

Al-Sarkaji, who lives in Nablus and also works as a TV producer, said his problems began when he return to the West Bank after attending a training course for the Doha-based Al-Jazeera TV station.

His father, Yusef, was a senior Hamas commander who was killed by the IDF in 2002.
