Following up on the previous post on Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HT), it seems that it is not only concern for Western governments - the radical Islamic fundamentalist group is also troubling the Palestinian Authority.

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces in the West Bank on July 2 detained dozens of HT supporters.

HT accused PA security forces of assaulting many of its supporters during attempts to hold rallies held in major Palestinian cities marking the anniversary of the collapse of the Islamic Caliphate system...

The group has a few thousand supporters in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, where both the PA and Hamas have been cracking down on them.
