Undercover Israeli forces detain Hamas leader in Beit Ummar

Aug. 14, 2014 1:13 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 14, 2014 5:08 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Undercover Israeli forces detained a Hamas leader in the town of Beit Ummar on Thursday, a local community leader said.

The spokesperson of Beit Ummar's popular committee said Israeli forces from an undercover unit who disguise themselves as Palestinians, known in Hebrew as Mistaravim, kidnapped Ahmad Khader Abed Abu Maria, 47, from his house at 10 a.m.

His relative, Hashem Khader Abu Maria, 45, was shot and killed during a Gaza solidarity protest in the town on July 25.

Locals in the town said they noticed 15 masked men hiding in an ice-cream truck in the town and began throwing stones at the vehicle.

The masked men, who were undercover Israeli forces, fired live ammunition at the villagers, with no injuries reported.

Israeli soldiers then fired tear gas canisters at locals who had attempted to push back the undercover unit, who retreated to the nearby illegal Karmi Tsur settlement.

Israeli forces also raided the home of Muhammad Munir Radwan Qawqas, 36, and pointed a gun at his mother.

He was blindfolded, handcuffed and taken to Etzion military base.

Muhammad is an ex-prisoner who spent 10 years in Israeli prisons. He is a married father of two girls and teaches Hebrew in a school in Bethlehem.

Israeli forces also detained Usama Mahmoud Awad Kamil, 26, and Ahmad Khaled Mahmoud Kamil, 26, in the Jenin village of Qabatiya.
