Gaza Post- West Bank
Palestinian Authority has arrested a Palestinian businessman who attended the US-led economic workshop in Bahrain this week, local newspapers reported on Saturday.
The businessman was identified as Salah Abu Miala from the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.
The Palestinian businessman Ashraj Jabari, who also attended the conference, said, "Salah's son spoke to me by phone and told me that his father was arrested.
While the Palestinian Authority's security service didn't respond to requests for comment on his disappear.
The Palestinian businessmen who joined the Manama workshop have been labeled as collaborators by some of the Palestinian leadership who have boycotted the conference.
The Palestinian Authority has been refusing to deal with the Trump administration for about 18 months because it doesn't trust it anymore, accusing it of bias towards Israel.
Trump's senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner offered $ 50 billion for investing in Palestine as part of the so-called Deal of the Century, saying the investment would be followed by a political plan to end the prolonged Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
