Security sources: Hamas members arrested in Jenin

Aug. 27, 2011 10:44 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 1, 2011 9:29 A.M.)
JENIN (Ma’an) – Israeli forces arrested two Hamas members in Jenin late Friday, local residents and security sources said.

Muhammad Ahmad Sokiyeh, 38, and Mahdi Hasan Hifawiyah, 34, were driving with their wives when "undercover" forces stopped their cars and took them to an undisclosed location, Palestinian security sources said.

The sources said Israel's operatives opened fire in order to stop their cars. There were no reports of injury.

Sokiyeh has been wanted since 2005 and Hifawiyah has spent time in Israeli custody.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said there were no arrests in Jenin overnight.
