BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- The Israeli army detained a 52-year-old Palestinian mother on Wednesday from the northern occupied West Bank district of Qalqilya, according to official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that Nuha Shawahne, whose two sons Orwa and Sharhabeel are prisoners in Israel, was detained after she, along with her husband and son, answered a summons to appear before Israeli police in the illegal Ariel settlement in the central West Bank district of Salfit.

Nuha’s son Omar Shawahne, who is an attorney, reportedly told Wafa that Israeli police in Ariel summoned his father, Taher, mother Nuha, and brother Abdul Karim for questioning at the police station on Tuesday.

After interrogating them until late into the night, his father and brother were sent home while his mother was detained in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Wafa reported that the Israeli military set Thursday as the date for Nuha to appear in a military court near Jenin, without explaining the reason for her detention.
