Israeli soldiers kidnapped in Salfit, on Tuesday at dawn, Palestinian legislator of the Hamas Change and Reform Bloc, Dr. Omar Abdul-Raziq, who also served as the Finance Minister of the Hamas-led government in 2006. The legislator was kidnapped after the army broke into his home in the central West Bank city of Salfit.

Soldiers searched the home of Abdul-Raziq, his office and confiscated his personal computer and mobile phone.

In December of last year, Israeli soldiers kidnapped three Hamas legislators in the West Bank. The three were identified as Nayef Rajoub, Mohammad Al Til and Khalil Al Raba’ey, all from the Hebron District.

The Ahrar Center for Detainees Studies and Human Rights slammed the kidnapping of elected legislators and officials and added that Israel is apparently planning another massive arrest of elected officials.
