IDF troops arrest Hamas lawmaker in West Bank city

Palestinian Authority security said on Monday that IDF troops arrested a Hamas lawmaker from the West Bank city of Nablus. According to the PA security, Mona Mansour and 19 other people with alleged ties to the Islamic group were arrested in the early morning raid. In recent weeks, IDF troops have raided Nablus almost nightly in a crackdown on the violently anti-Israel Hamas. The soldiers have also closed down several institutions allegedly linked to Hamas.
