Israeli forces ransacked several homes of Hamas leaders before detaining five of them.

The detainees were identified as Muhammad Natsha, a Hamas-affiliated lawmaker, Abdul-Khaliq Hasan Natsha, Muhammad Tahsin Shawar, Amjad Hamouri and Jawad Muhammad al-Jaabari.

They were all taken to unknown locations.

A military spokeswoman confirmed the arrests but put the number at six.

“They were all members of Hamas,” the spokeswoman told Ma’an.

Separately, Israeli soldiers stormed the home of a Hebron man in eastern Hebron and turned it into a military base.

Salameh Salaymah told Ma’an that Israelis troops raided his three-storey home at dawn and forced him to gather his 15 family members and stay in the first floor.

Meanwhile, the soldiers stationed themselves on the third floor.
