Israeli forces storm home of former Palestinian minister near Hebron

April 14, 2008 3:06 P.M. (Updated: April 14, 2008 3:06 P.M.)
Hebron - Ma'an - Israeli forces stormed home of former Palestinian minister and Hamas-affiliated lawmaker Nayif Rajoub in the southern West Bank town of Dura, west of Hebron, on Monday, witnesses said.

Rajoub's family said heavily-armed Israeli soldiers surrounded the house at 1am, throwing stones at the windows, smashing several of them.

Rajoub's wife, Umm Hudhayfa, told Ma'an that the soldiers forced the family into the street and ransacked the house. The soldiers confiscated green Hamas flags, 1,500 Jordanian Dinars, 3,000 NIS, and her children's savings.

Rajoub, the former minister of Waqf and Religious Affairs, was detained by Israel in June 2006, and has been imprisoned ever since. He was elected in the Hebron district in the January 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections.

More than 40 Palestinian lawmakers are currently detained in Israeli jails.
