Israel detains Hamas lawmaker in Ramallah

Sept. 15, 2011 5:42 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 16, 2011 2:11 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained Hamas lawmaker Sheikh Fadel Hamdan overnight Wednesday, a Ma'an correspondent reported.

Hamdan, a member of the now-defunct Palestinian legislative council elected in 2006, was detained after Israeli forces raided his Ramallah home.

The Hamas-affiliated parliamentary party the Change and Reform Bloc issued a statement calling the detention "an unsuccessful Israeli policy."

An Israeli army spokeswoman said Hamdan was arrested and taken for security questioning.

Hamdan is the third Hamas MP detained by Israel in as many weeks.
