The Israel Defense Forces released a 67-second video clip showing soldiers arrest Hamas co-founder Hassan Yousef in the West Bank village of Beitunia before dawn on Tuesday.
In the video, troops from the Artillery Corps Ra'am battalion as well as units from the Binyamin territorial brigade are seen entering Yousef's home and escorting him into custody.
The arrest was a joint IDF-Shin Bet operation. Yousef, 60, is involved in intensive activities aimed at inciting Palestinians to commit acts of terrorism, according to the army.
The sheikh has been arrested and jailed in Israel on several past occasions. Israeli authorities accuse him of "[fomenting] violence and conflict against Israel among the Palestinian public."
