The IDF arrested on Monday a Palestinian Authority Arab from a family affiliated with Hamas after he was spotted taking pictures of a Jewish community located between Hevron and Arad, the Jewish Press has learned.
Sources said that the Arab is part of a clan that lives next door to the community of Beit Yatir, located at the southern edge of the Hevron Hills, and is often supported by leftists and anarchists.
He entered the community from the adjacent Yatir Forest, which is not fenced, and began taking pictures until a resident saw him and reported the suspicious activity.
