Israeli forces have arrested the son of Hamas leader Gamal Abul-Haigaa in Jenin in the northern West Bank, according to a Tuesday statement by the resistance group.
"Israeli Special Forces this afternoon kidnapped Emad Abul-Haigaa from a shop on Haifa Street in Jenin," read a statement by Hamas leader Wasfi Qabha.
"Israeli troops assaulted Emad before taking him to an unknown location," he said.
Eyewitnesses said that Israel troops had worn plainclothes and driven a car with Palestinian license plates.
Palestinian authorities have yet to comment on the alleged incident.
Two months ago, Israeli security forces stormed the elder Abul-Haigaa's home – killing one resident – on the pretext of searching for wanted individuals.
Abul-Haigaa's other son, Hamza, is also wanted for multiple charges, while a third son remains in detention by the Israeli authorities.
