A top West Bank Hamas official was arrested on Tuesday by the IDF in the el-Amari refugee camp near Ramallah.

He was arrested in a joint operation by the IDF and Shin Bet “for his involvement in security-related activities that presented a threat to security in the area,” the Shin Bet said.

Specifically, Abu Kweik is suspected of “incitement,” the security service said. However, additional allegations may be brought against the senior Hamas official following his interrogation, it added.

In recent days Abu Kweik has boasted that his group is the “spearhead of the resistance” against Israel, Israel Radio reported.

In the same operation, Israeli forces arrested a number of other suspected Hamas members from villages and cities around the West Bank, the IDF said.
