Israeli forces detained Hamas leader, Abd Al-Khaleq Al-Natsheh, in his home in the Jabal Al-Rahma neighbourhood of Hebron City at dawn on Friday.

Israeli forces detained five Palestinians, including a Hamas leader, during overnight raids across the West Bank between Thursday and Friday.

Hamas leader, Abd al-Khaleq al-Natsheh, was arrested in his home in the Jabal Al-Rahma neighbourhood of Hebron City at dawn on Friday, sources told Ma’an News Agency.

His neighbour filmed the Israeli soldiers abducting al-Natsheh and confiscating his car, for reasons still unknown.

Last month, anger sparked among the local Palestinian community after an Israeli settler ran over a young boy in Hebron.

Eight-year-old Laith Youssef Shatat was injured in east of Yatta, located in southern Hebron, as he walked home from school.

Israeli forces routinely conduct raids in the West Bank, with even children being victim to them.

In April, Israeli forces captured dozens of Palestinians, including at least five children, from Monday evening until Tuesday afternoon for unknown reasons.
