Palestinian officials said they placed the spiritual leader of Hamas under house arrest and ordered him not to speak with reporters. However, the family of Sheik Ahmed Yassin said he was not aware of any restrictions on his movements. Palestinian security officials also said they arrested more than 100 militants belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, but some Israeli officials dismissed the arrests as a sham.
