Palestinian security forces have arrested a senior Hamas operative in Hebron. The man, al-Kawasma, has been defined as the Palestinian Authority's "most wanted man" since 1998.
A security source told the Ma'an news agency that al-Kawasma was arrested in Hebron Thursday. He added that the IDF has also previously made attempts to catch him. Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called the arrest "the persecution of warriors". (Roee Nahmias)
