HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinian women in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron since the beginning of June, according to Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS).

PPS confirmed the detention of a member of the Hebron Municipal Council, Suzan al-Eweiwi, 40, on June 5th. She is also a wife and mother of four children. During the detention, al-Eweiwi was subjected to a harsh interrogation, which lasted for several consecutive days. Israeli authorities even prevented her lawyer from visiting her in prison.

On June 17th, Israeli forces detained Safaa Abu Sneineh, 36, also a wife and mother of four children. Since her detention, Abu Sneineh has been held in the Israeli Ashkelon prison.

Israeli forces detained Dunia Said, 39, on July 4th, who is the widow of killed Palestinian, Nashat al-Karmi, and mother to a child. Said was also transferred to the Ashkelon prison, where she is still being held.

The most recent detention took place on July 24th, when Israeli forces detained a female writer, wife, and a mother of five children, Lama Khater, 42.

Khater was forcefully removed from her home in Hebron and transferred to the Ashkelon prison. Khater told her lawyer that she was being subjected to harsh and intensive interrogations.

The detentions carried out by Israeli forces mostly occur during overnight raids in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are 5,900 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons, 63 of whom are female prisoners.
