The Israeli army took three residents prisoners from the West Bank city of Hebron after attacking residents' houses on Saturday morning.

In the search campaign Israeli soldiers in Hebron targeted residents' houses in the city center and the old city; resulting in three residents being taken to unknown locations. 

Amongst them was Mustafa Shaouir, 48, a lecturer in Hebron university and a Hamas member; he was released from Israeli detention centers last month after serving 19 months in Israeli jails.
