The IDF arrested a terrorism suspect in Hebron overnight between Saturday and Sunday, Palestinian media agency Ma'an reported.

Ma'an said the raid occurred in the city's Qarn al-Thour neighborhood, and that the arrest was made "in connection with the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers weeks earlier."

It named the suspect as Husam Dufish, and cited his relatives and Palestinian security sources as confirming the raid on his home.

"Israeli intelligence accuses Dufish of involvement in the killing of the three teens along with Amir Abu Eisha and Marwan al-Qawasmi," the report said.

Security forces said "Dufish had disappeared since the teens were kidnapped, while his family told Ma’an that he was in his house living his life normally," it added.

The IDF raided his home two weeks ago, but he was not at home, and his family received a summons to an intelligence office for questioning, which he failed to comply with.
