SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Palestinian lawmaker and former minister of finance Omar Abd al-Raziq was released from Israeli custody on Monday night after he served six months without trial under administrative detention.

Abd al-Raziq, from Salfit in the central West Bank, was released from Negev prison to Dhahiriya city south of Hebron Monday night.

The Hamas-affiliated lawmaker was detained during an Israeli crackdown against Hamas supporters in July 2014 after three Israeli teens were kidnapped near Hebron in the southern West Bank.
