Israeli forces on Thursday morning arrested five Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem, including the wife of a Palestinian lawmaker.

In a statement, the Committee for Jerusalem’s Prisoners, an NGO, said Israeli police had arrested Nisreen Dwayat, wife of MP Ahmed Attoun, after raiding her home in the village of Sur Baher.

Israeli forces also arrested Mohamed Obaid, the son of longstanding prisoner Ahmed Obaid (who is currently serving a life sentence in Israel), after storming his home in the village of Issawiya, according to the same source. 

Two brothers, meanwhile, Thaer al-Fakhouri and Abdul-Fattah al-Fakhouri, were also reportedly detained in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Israeli forces also carried out raids in East Jerusalem’s town of Silwan, the NGO said, where they arrested Mamun al-Razem, a young Palestinian man, from his home.

The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians. 

According to Palestinian figures, some 6,500 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli jails, including dozens of women, scores of minors, and at least six Palestinian lawmakers.
