Detainee's mother dies without seeing son

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The mother of a Palestinian detainee died Tuesday without seeing her son for many years, a rights group said.

A prisoners' association said the dying wish of 80-year-old Wadhah Daamsa was to see her son Yahya.

Yahya Daamsa, 40, is sentenced to two terms of life imprisonment plus 40 years.

Israeli forces detained him on April 7, 2002, and demolished his home in Duheisha refugee camp in Bethlehem.

He was accused of making explosive devices to be used in operations inside Israel and membership of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.
