Hassan Yousef, a senior leader of Hamas, and a former sritual leader in the West Bank, was arrested along with his son at their home in Bitunia near Ramallah on Tuesday morning, November 1st.

The arrest comes just two months after Yousef, a founder of Hamas, had been released from prison after completing a six-year sentence on terrorism-related charges.

As expected, Hamas reacted to the arrests almost immediately, stating that the arrests were proof of "Israeli escalation and an offense against a Palestinian symbol".

The senior Youself was one of the prominent Palestinian leaders who were on hand to welcome home Palestinian prisoners freed from Israeli prisons as part of Gilad Shalit deal as they left Israeli custody, and made their way into the West Bank.

Hassan is also well-known as the father of Mosab Hassan Yousef, who wrote a book called “Son of Hamas” after becoming a Mossad informant during the second Intifada.
