Hamas security forces arrested early Sunday an influential member of Fatah in the Gaza Strip, the forces and his family said. Yehiyeh Rabah, a columnist in the Palestinian official daily Al-Hayat al-Jadida, was arrested at his home shortly after midnight, the Hamas forces and his family said. Rabah, who is in his 70s, was the Palestinian ambassador to Yemen for more than 20 years. Rabah had been interrogated by Hamas security two days ago and released. Rabah is suspected of accepting bribes from families to get their members recruited into the Fatah-allied Palestinian security forces, a Hamas official said.
