The Progressive Socialist Party is awaiting the results of an investigation of a party member arrested last week on suspicion of collaborating with Israel, a source said Monday. The source said the PSP believed that it was unlikely that the accused – Saleem Abu Hamdan, who is also known as Abu Kifah – had cooperated with Israel, given the active role that he had played against the Israeli occupation. However, the source said that Abu Kifah was just a member of a guard unit at Jumblatt's Clemenceau residence before he left his job to focus on his duties at PSP's Choueifat branch.Arab Tawhid Party leader Wiam Wahhab also stood up in support of Abu Kifah.
