HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli forces raided the southern West Bank city of Hebron early on Wednesday morning and detained five local Hamas leaders, local sources said.

Israeli forces ransacked several homes of Hamas leaders before detaining five of them.

The detainees were identified as Muhammad Natsha, a Hamas-affiliated lawmaker, Abdul-Khaliq Hasan Natsha, Muhammad Tahsin Shawar, Amjad Hamouri and Jawad Muhammad al-Jaabari.

They were all taken to unknown locations.

A military spokeswoman confirmed the arrests but put the number at six.

"They were all members of Hamas," the spokeswoman told Ma'an.

Separately, Israeli soldiers stormed the home of a Hebron man in eastern Hebron and turned it into a military base.

Salameh Salaymah told Ma’an that Israelis troops raided his three-storey home at dawn and forced him to gather his 15 family members and stay in the first floor.

Meanwhile, the soldiers stationed themselves on the third floor.
