Senior Hamas leader arrested in West Bank


Israel arrested a senior Hamas leader just two months after releasing him from prison.

Hassan Yousef and his son were arrested Tuesday morning at their home in the West Bank.

Yousef, a Hamas founder, recently completed a six-year prison sentence on terrorism-related charges.

He was one of the Palestinian leaders who greeted the Palestinian prisoners released in the Shalit as they crossed from Israeli custody into the West Bank.

He is well known as the father of Mosab Hassan Yousef, who became an informant for Israel’s Mossad during the second Intifada and wrote a book about his experiences, called “Son of Hamas.”
