IDF arrests fourth Hamas parliamentarian in five days

The IDF arrested another Hamas member of the Palestinian parliament Tuesday morning - the fourth such arrest in five days, the Palestinian Ma'an news agency reported.
According to the report, the IDF arrested the 43-year old Abul Jabbar Fuqaha in his Ramallah home. 
Responding to the arrest, Hamas's political arm sent a mobile phone statement condemning "arrogant Zionist policy against Hamas figures."
Monday, police arrested two Hamas politicians, Khaled Abu-Arafa and Muhammad Totah, who had been hiding in an east Jerusalem Red Cross building for a year and a half. Aziz Dweik, the speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of involvement with terrorist groups.
