The Israeli occupation forces arrested Palestinian writer, Salah Hamideh, 44, from his house in the town of Bitounia, in Ramallah, in the West Bank, on Sunday

Local sources told SAFA News Agency that an Israeli force stormed the house of Hamideh, searched it, interrogated its residents and took Hamideh to Ofir Military Prison and Interrogation Center.

Hamideh is known for his pro-resistance writings. He is a former political prisoner in Israeli jails. He nominated himself for the local elections, which was supposed to be held in October 2016.

Israeli forces arrest dozens of Palestinians in the West Bank on a daily basis. There are currently some 6,500 Palestinians prisoners in Israeli jails.
