HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Two leaders of Hamas' military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, were killed overnight Friday in Hebron during an Israeli army raid in the Jabal Johar village's Abu Sneineh neighborhood, witnesses told Ma'an.

The two killed were identified as Nashat Al-Karmi, a senior military commander and Maamoun Al-Natsha, local Hebron commander. Both were deemed "wanted" by Israel.

Witnesses further said Israeli troops raided the area and confiscated cameras from journalists at the scene.

Israeli forces imposed a curfew on the southern West Bank district as the raid remains ongoing amid gunfire.

Locals said troops surrounded three homes belonging to Radwan Ar-Rajabi, Saadi Barwan and Ayoub Gheith, demolishing the fence surrounding the houses.

Israeli bulldozers were seen demolishing a three-story home in search of "wanted" Palestinians in hiding, witnesses said.

Forces also detained Ayoub Ismael Ar-Rajabi, 28, and Mus'ab Al-Atrash, witnesses said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that there was ongoing military activity in Hebron and that it would continue to update on the situation.

Meanwhile, Israeli daily Haaretz reported that the two killed where Hamas affiliates who were wanted for their involvement in attacks against Israelis.

(This article was UPDATED to include the identities of the two killed and their affiliation to Hamas' military wing.)
