Israeli security forces arrested 15 Palestinians in the West Bank overnight Wednesday, among them a Hamas representative in the Palestinian Legislative Council.
Muhammad Abu Tir, 64, was arrested in Kafr Aqab, north of Jerusalem, reports said.
The Palestinian lawmaker has been arrested several times in the past. In 2012 he was released from a year of detention without charges and expelled from Jerusalem, and is banned from entering the capital.
In June 2015 he was again released following an arrest.
The other 14 suspects were detained for suspected involvement in “popular terrorism” and violent confrontations with Israeli civilians and security forces, the army said in a statement.
In the West Bank town of Tulkarem, soldiers seized an M-16 rifle along with magazines, ammunition and other military equipment.
