Israeli forces detain mother of slain Palestinian Muhannad al-Halabi

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Israeli forces Thursday detained the mother of slain Palestinian Muhannad al-Halabi after summoning her for an interrogation with Israeli intelligence on Wednesday, the family told Ma’an.

The al-Halabi family said that Israeli forces detained al-Halabi’s mother due to a Facebook post, adding that a court session was expected to be held on her case on Sunday. While the family did not provide details on the content of the Facebook post, scores of Palestinians have been detained across the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Israel for social media posts that Israeli authorities have claimed "incite" against Israel. 

Al-Halabi’s mother was also summoned for interrogation by Israel a few months ago and was threatened with detention.

Al-Halabi was shot dead by Israeli forces last year after carrying out a deadly shooting attack in occupied East Jerusalem’s Old City which left two Israelis dead.

At the start of this year, Israeli forces also demolished the family home of al-Halabi, in a move that rights groups have called “collective punishment” that targets non-complicit relatives of an attacker.

Rights groups and activists have also long accused Israel of targeting Palestinian families whose children or relatives are involved in attacks -- or Palestinians politically active against the Israeli occupation -- with detentions and interrogations.
