Israeli police arrested the Palestinian governor of occupied Jerusalem for the second time in as many months Sunday after an investigation related to a land sale.On Oct. 20, Gheith was detained for two days of questioning before being released, with Israel's Shin Bet domestic security agency saying it was over "illegal activity by the [PA] in Jerusalem".Israeli media have reported that authorities have been investigating the governor following the PA's arrest of a man in October accused of being involved in selling property in East Jerusalem to an Israeli buyer.PA activities are barred from Jerusalem by Israel.As a result, the PA has a Jerusalem affairs minister and a Jerusalem governor located in Al-Ram, just on the other side of Israel's separation wall from Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank.
