• Zionist forces detain Hamas-linked legislator in occupied West Bank

Israeli regime forces have detained a legislator affiliated to the Gaza-based Hamas resistance movement along with more than a dozen other Palestinians during separate raids across the occupied West Bank.

Local sources, who asked not to be named, said Israeli forces raided the central West Bank city of Salfit early on Monday, broke into the home of Omar Abdul-Razeq and detained him.

Abdul-Razeq is a member of the Hamas-affiliated Change and Reform bloc in the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC).

Israeli forces also arrested three Palestinians in Kafr Malik town, located 17 kilometers northeast of the city of Ramallah, as well as Kharbatha al-Misbah town.

Another Palestinian was detained during a raid in the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

Israeli troops arrested three other Palestinians in Nablus, the Christian town of Beit Jala, located 10 kilometers south of Jerusalem al-Quds, as well as the Arab neighborhood of al-Isawiyah in al-Quds.

Israeli forces carry out night raids across the occupied Palestinian territories on a nearly daily basis.
