RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces spokesman Adnan al-Dmeiri denied on Monday reports that Ramallah chief of police Abd al-Latif al-Qaddumi had resigned in the wake of the police’s violent suppression of anti-PA protests in the central occupied West Bank city a day earlier.

Dmeiri told Ma’an that reports in some local media outlets claiming that al-Qaddumi had resigned and that a number of other police officers were interrogated were false, calling the reports “a provocation.”
At least 11 protesters were injured by Palestinian police in Ramallah on Sunday, after locals gathered in protest of the PA’s policy of security coordination with Israel over a case against a group of Palestinians who were imprisoned alongside slain activist Basel al-Araj last year by the PA, who were later imprisoned by Israel.
Police assaulted journalists and prevented them from covering the event, while some reported that their equipment had been broken, and later on Sunday, police suppressed a similar protest in Duheisharefugee camp in Bethlehem.
