Palestinians protest Israeli murder of Hamas figure

WEST BANK: Angry Palestinians have taken to the streets Monday in the occupied West Bank to protest Israeli assassination of a senior Hamas figure.
People in the Fatah-controlled Ramallah rallied on Sunday to show solidarity with the besieged Gaza where Mazen Fuqaha was shot dead by assailants on Friday night with four bullets to the head.
Hamas and its military wing have held Israel and “its collaborators responsible for this despicable crime,” the resistance movement said in a statement.
Israeli authorities have prevented Palestinian prisoners in Ktziot Prison in Negev Desert from holding a memorial service for Fuqaha. They are reportedly moving prisoners linked to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, another Gaza-based resistance movement, to a separate cell.
On Monday, Israeli forces detained 14 Palestinians during raids at different locations across the West Bank, the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency reported.
The detainees included Rafat Nasif, a senior Hamas official, who was spirited away from his residence in Tulkaram city in northwestern West Bank only a month after his release from Israeli incarceration. Agencies.
