Undercover Israeli forces detain Fatah official in Nablus

Jan. 18, 2016 12:56 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 19, 2016 11:51 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Undercover Israeli forces on Monday detained a Fatah official from his home in the Old City of Nablus, Palestinian security sources told Ma'an.

Palestinian security sources said Israeli forces dressed as construction workers detained Muhammad Mahmoud al-Tabouq, 34 and a Fatah official, from the al-Sheikh Musallam area of the Old City after raiding and ransacking the official's home around 6 a.m.

The sources added that no other homes in the area were raided.

The reason for al-Tabouq's detention is unknown, but sources said al-Tabouq had previously served 10 years in Israeli prison.

Undercover Israeli forces -- known as “mustarabin” -- are used by Israeli security and military forces to detain Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Reports of undercover forces in Palestinian areas have increased since Oct. 1, coinciding with increased detentions that have taken place across the occupied area.
