JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces and intelligence officers raided the homes of two Islamic Jihad members in Jenin overnight Tuesday.

Khader Adnan, a former long term hunger-striker, told Ma'an that an Israeli intelligence officer escorted by a large number of soldiers ransacked his house, after trying to shake hands and talk to him.

After Adnan refused to shake his hand or talk with him, the Israeli officer told Adnan's father that he had been recently appointed as head of the Jenin area and wanted to get acquainted with Adnan.

Tariq Quadan, another ex-hunger striker, told Ma'an that an Israeli intelligence officer introduced himself as "Captain Ghazi" and inspected his house while asking questions.

Israeli forces also raided the home of Jaafar Izz Addin and threatened him with arrest if he carried out any activities which would harm Israel's security.

Israeli officers then inspected the home before leaving.

All three men live near the village of Arraba in Jenin.

Khader Adnan went on hunger strike in December 2011 to protest his arrest by Israeli forces. He was held under administrative detention, a charge under which he could have been held indefinitely by Israel without trial or charge.

Adnan's hunger strike sparked popular protests across the West Bank and inspired several other Palestinian prisoners to launch similar protest action to demand their freedom.
