Bethlehem - Ma'an - Ahrar center for prisoner research and human rights claimed on Tuesday that Israeli forces detained a member of the village council of Shuqba village to the west of Ramallah, 40-year-old Suhaila Shalash, while she was returning home from Al-Omra on Monday.

Suhaila Shalash is a mother of six, headmistress of the school of Riyad Al-Atfal and was elected as a member of the council in the last elections.

Head of the Ahrar center, Fouad Al-Khafash, said in a statement that such detentions of village and municipal council members have been increasing recently along with the detention of women.

Al-Khafash also confirmed that the period of detention for Palestinian Legislative Council member, Muna Mansour, would be extended for another eight days. Mansour has been detained for over a week now and has been transferred to HaSharon women's prison.

Al-Khafsh called on international organizations and human rights institutions to act now in order to end such detentions.
