NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested a man suffering from cancer in Nablus on Sunday, locals said.

The director of a prisoners association in Nablus, Raed Amer, called on Israel to immediately release Turabi and allow him to undergo medical treatment.

Qassem Turabi, Muhammad Turabi, Muhammad Sweisa, Ali Hussein, Hassan Turabi, Ali Turabi and Jaafar Turabi were also detained in Sarra village, locals said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that four people were arrested overnight, two in Ramallah and two near Bethlehem.
