JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the Jerusalem home of Fatah leader Anwar Badr on Wednesday and detained him, relatives said.
Badr's sister told Ma'an that Israeli border guards raided the Abu Dis property and ransacked the home before arresting Anwar.
They treated the family "savagely" while inspecting the house and deliberately damaged furniture and other contents, she added.
Witnesses said they saw Israeli forces searching the outside of Badr's home before clashes broke out with young locals, who threw bottles and rocks at the invading Israeli forces.
Israeli soldiers fired gunshots in the air to disperse the young men.
Badr's sister denied claims by Israeli police that an explosive device and a firearm were found in the property.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces detained four Palestinians from the Hebron village of as-Samu overnight.
Local resident Haytham Abu Seif told Ma'an that Israeli troops detained 19-year-old Ahmad Mousa al-Khalayla, 20-year-old Maamun Muhammad al-Khalayla, 18-year-old Amin Abdul-Karim al-Tawil and 22-year-old Alaa Muhammad Badarin.
Khairi Burhan Daraghmah from the northern Jordan Valley was also detained by Israeli forces.
