IOA arrests Palestinian woman in bid to pressure brother

18:00 Oct 2 2011 Beit Fajjar

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authorities arrested Sunday evening a 20-year-old woman from Beit Fajjar, eight kilometers south of Bethlehem in the West Bank, in an apparent bid to pressure her brother into confession.

The detainee Nubal Ali Issa Taqatqa has been summoned on several occasions for questioning by both the Israeli security forces and those of the Palestinian Authority, amid accusations involving the use of the Facebook social network.

Taqatqa’s brother Muhammad Ali Issa Taqatqa was arrested on 1 Sept. 2011 while heading for prayers in the Ibrahimi Mosque in Al-Khalil and is still under investigation for suspicion of trying to stab Israeli soldiers.

The family has maintained that Muhammad's sole purpose of going to Ibrahimi Mosque was to pray and he did not have any implements in his possession.

In separate incidents, the Israeli Damon prison administration has isolated four female prisoners from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine after the women joined a hunger strike declared by Palestinian prisoners a week back.
