Israeli forces on Tuesday detained leading Hamas member Khaled al-Hajj in the West Bank city of Jenin, according to his wife.
“An Israeli force raided our home in Al-Jabriyat neighborhood and detained my husband,” the wife, who did not provide her name, said.
The cause of the detention remains unclear.
Al-Hajj, 55, was arrested several times before, and spent a total of 15 years in Israeli prisons.
According to Hamas sources, Al-Hajj was released from prison less than a year ago.
