Default Israel arrests Hamas leader in West Bank raid

Senior Hamas figure Hassan Yusef arrested in overnight raid near Ramallah, Israeli army spokesman says.

Israeli security forces have arrested Hassan Yusef, one of Hamas' top figures in the occupied West Bank, in an overnight raid near Ramallah, the Israeli army said.

"During the night, forces of the army and the Shin Bet [internal security service] arrested Hassan Yusef, a Hamas leader, in Beitunia, southwest of Ramallah," an army statement said on Tuesday.

Speaking to Al Jazeera from the Gaza Strip, Hamas spokesman Ghazi al-Hamad said Yusef's arrest was "part of Israel's oppression of Palestinians".

"It's designed to keep Palestinians from resisting its occupation. The Israeli government is trying to pressure Hamas and other Palestinians in an effort to end the Intifada in Palestine," Hamad said.

Yusef has been arrested by the Israeli authorities several times, starting from 1993, and became the visible leader of the second Intifada which started in 2000.

In 2005, he was nominated to represent Hamas during the elections as an absentee candidate as he was in jail.
