The Ahrar Center for Detainees' Studies and Human Rights reported that 
Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Monday and Tuesday 26 Palestinians in 
different parts of the occupied West Bank. Legislators and Hamas leaders 
are among the kidnapped.

The Ahrar center said that the army kidnapped, on Tuesday at dawn, Zaher 
Mousa, a former political prisoner who was previously exiled by Israel, 
from the Zawata village, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The 
soldiers also kidnapped Dirar Hamadna, from Aseera Al-Shamaliyya village 
near Nablus.

Former political prisoner, head of the Ahrar Center, Fuad Al-Khoffash, 
stated that the army is deliberately targeting Hamas elected officials 
and legislators in the occupied West Bank in a move that is meant to 
disrupt national reconciliation and unity.

Al-Khuffash said that, starting on Monday at dawn, Israeli soldiers 
escalated their arrest campaign against the Palestinians in the West 
Bank, and kidnapped 26 persons, including Jerusalem legislator who was 
exiled by Israel to Ramallah, Ahmad Attoun, Hebron district legislators 
Hatem Qfeisha and Mohammad Ismail At-Till, and two senior Hamas 
political officials from Nablus identified as Adnan Asfour and Bilal Baker.

Soldiers also kidnapped Riyadh Al-Walweel, a Hamas leader in Qalqilia, 
Omar Al-Jabreeny, and Hamas official in the Balata refugee camp in 
Nablus, and Adnan Al-Hosary.

Al-Khuffash said that some of the residents who were kidnapped by the 
army on Monday and Tuesday have been identified as, former political 
prisoner Fadi Al-Amour from Tulkarem, Samir Bheiss from Yatta near 
Hebron, Baha' Yaish from Nablus, Mohsin Al-Hardan from Qalqilia, Ma'moun 
Zawahra from Bethlehem, Zein Ed-Deen Shabana from Hebron, Wael Issa 
Obeiyyat from Bethlehem, Mohammad Sabah from Teqoa' near Bethlehem, 
Basel Dweikat from Beta town, Jihad and Nidal Salah Badawi, Mjally 
Zoheir Issa, Qaher Moammar, Shaker Mousa, Dirar Hamadna and Zaher Mousa 
from Qaryout town.

The latest invasions and arrests in the West Bank are considered a 
serious escalation of attacks against the Palestinians and their 
property in different parts of the occupied West Bank.

Several Hamas officials, political leaders and human rights advocates 
slammed the latest violations, and called on the International Community 
to intervene and oblige Israel to end its violations.

Also on Tuesday, medical sources in Nablus said that a Palestinian 
child, who fell into a coma after being rammed by a settler's vehicle, 
died of his injuries.
