IDF arrests key Hamas elections official in the West Bank
Group accuses Israel of meddling in Palestinian politics; move comes a day after top Gaza official said vote could be postponed
Abu Kweik is Hamas’s main West Bank campaigner in the elections, which are slated for October 8. Last week, he was appointed Hamas’s only representative to the PA’s central elections commission, which is overseeing the elections.
He was arrested in a joint operation by the IDF and Shin Bet “for his involvement in security-related activities that presented a threat to security in the area,” the Shin Bet said.
Specifically, Abu Kweik is suspected of “incitement,” the security service said. However, additional allegations may be brought against the senior Hamas official following his interrogation, it added.
In recent days Abu Kweik has boasted that his group is the “spearhead of the resistance” against Israel, Israel Radio reported.
