JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces raided the houses and offices of three Palestinian lawmakers from Jenin on Thursday and confiscated their computers and mobile phones, security sources said.

The lawmakers were investigated by an Israeli intelligence officer.

Security sources said that from 12-2 a.m., agents raided the houses of Ibrahim Dahbour from Arrab and Khalid Sulaiman and Khalid Yahya from Jenin.

Dahbour said intelligence agents also confiscated files and documents.

He added that an Israeli intelligence officer investigated them and asked them about the general situation in the area and activities of the other lawmakers.

Sulaiman said that while raiding his office, the forces told him it would be closed until another Israeli officer said otherwise. However, he says he never received any official notice closing it.
