Israeli forces on Tuesday arrested Ayub al-Qawasmi, a leading member of the Ezzeddin al-Qassam Brigades, the military arm of Hamas, in the West Bank city of Al-Khalil (Hebron), a Hamas leader confirmed.
"Al-Qawasmi was arrested by a Mista'arvim force (an Israeli force in which troops are disguised as Arabs) in Al-Khalil," the Hamas leader, who preferred to remain anonymous, told Anadolu Agency.
Al-Qawasmi had been wanted by the Israeli authorities since 1998 in connection with attacks on Israeli targets.
He was arrested in 2010 by the Palestinian Authority (PA) forces and was released earlier this week on health grounds.Last Mod: 05 Mart 2014, 09:45
