Family: Israeli forces arrest brother of jailed cartoonist

March 6, 2013 11:43 A.M. (Updated: March 9, 2013 12:01 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested the brother of a jailed cartoonist on Wednesday in a pre-dawn raid on his home near Jenin in the northern West Bank, his wife said.

Israeli troops raided the home of Thamer Sabaana, 37, in Qabatiya at around 2.30 a.m. and detained him. They also confiscated his laptop and cell phone, his wife told Ma'an.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Thamer Sabaana is a teacher and an activist for prisoners' rights. He has previously served three years in Israeli jails.

His brother, the cartoonist Mohamed Sabaana, was detained on Feb. 16 as he returned to the West Bank from Jordan. The media watchdog Mada has demanded the 34-year-old's release.
