Senior Hamas operative Nail Barguti, a high profile convicted terrorist released by Israel in 2011 during the Schalit prisoner deal, was arrested early Wednesday morning during IDF raids on Hamas members.

Barguti, who had been serving a life sentence for murdering an Israeli army officer, was "very surprised" when Kfir infantry soldiers showed up at his home, a senior security source said.

The source said soldiers taking part in raids feel highly motivated to play their part in the wider effort to retrieve three Israeli teenagers kidnapped on Thursday, and hope that every Hamas member they arrest might provide information that can direct security forces to the abducted youths.
