JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday briefly detained a 70-year-old Palestinian woman after ransacking her home in Tubas in the northern West Bank, Palestinian officials said Tuesday.

Palestinian liaison officials told Ma'an they contacted their Israeli counterparts demanding the release of Sabja Farah Daraghmah and she was freed on Monday.

Israeli authorities said Daraghmah was detained for "security reasons," the Palestinian officials added.

Director of the Palestinian liaison office in Jenin and Tubas Khalid Abdul-Aziz visited Daragmah on Tuesday morning to check up on her, a Ma'an reporter said.
