Israeli security forces arrested 25 Palestinians in overnight raids across the West Bank. Among those detained were prominent members of the Hamas movement and former prisoner Mona Qa’dan.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Mahmoud Qa’dan, Mona’s brother, said Israeli security forces raided his sister’s house at dawn in the town of Arraba and took her into custody.
“Mona was previously arrested five times, and was last released in 2016 after 40 months of detention in the occupation prisons,” Mahmoud said.
A local source in Hebron, who spoke to Anadolu on condition of anonymity, said the Hamas member Mustafa Shawer, Palestinian Legislative Council member Omar al-Qawasmi, and Anas Rasras were among those arrested in the raids.
A young woman, Shams Mashaqi, was also arrested from her village of Yaseed near Nablus.
Most of the arrests took place in the cities of Hebron, Bethlehem, Jenin, Ramallah, Al-Bireh and occupied East Jerusalem.
