HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council on Friday in Hebron, locals said.

Israeli forces raided the home of Ahmad Moussa al-Zaarir, 52, in al-Samu and searched the property before detaining him.

As of July, 34 Palestinian MPs were being held in detention by Israel, 23 of whom had been arrested in a large-scale detention campaign in the West Bank following the kidnapping of three Israeli youths.

Meanwhile, Palestinians threw a Molotov cocktail at an Israeli military checkpoint in Hebron's Shuhada street, setting it alight.

No injuries were reported, but part of the checkpoint was destroyed.
