Locals told Ma’an that Israeli undercover forces smashed the main doors of the hotel before entering the building. They then broke into several rooms before detaining terrorist Basel Fares Ibrahim al-Naasan, 20.
The forces, undercover agents disguised as Palestinians from the Mustaribeen special unit, also confiscated a computer containing surveillance camera footage.
Al-Naasan was shot and injured at the Zatara checkpoint on Oct. 30 while riding with Qassem Mahmoud Sabaneh on a motorcycle after he carried out a terror attack.
An Israeli army spokesperson said at the time that two Palestinians – one of whom was Al-Naasan – tried to stab an Israeli border policeman at the checkpoint south of Nablus.
