NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Undercover Israeli forces on Sunday morning arrested a Palestinian patient after storming al-Arabi Hospital in Nablus in the northern West Bank, medical sources told Ma'an.

The medical director of the hospital, Samir al-Khayyat, said that a group of undercover Israeli agents entered al-Arabi hospital, disguised as Palestinians escorting a patient, around 4 a.m. on Sunday.

The undercover agents then reportedly went upstairs to the third floor and stormed room 302 where they detained 23-year-old Karam al-Masri at gunpoint.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not immediately respond for comment.

Al-Masri is an engineer who was admitted at the hospital two days previously.

After he was detained, Israeli officers allegedly disabled surveillance cameras in the hospital, al-Khayyat added.

Tensions have soared in the northern West Bank district in recent days, following an attack south of Nablus that left two settlers dead on Thursday.

Since the attack freedom of movement within the district has been severely restricted as Israeli forces undertake a massive search for Palestinian suspects.
