In the central West Bank district of Ramallah, PPS reported the detention of Ibtisam and Khalid al-Abed, the mother and brother of Omar al-Abed, a Palestinian currently detained by Israel for stabbing and killing three Israeli settlers in July.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the two detentions, which took place in the village of Kobar.
