Israeli occupation forces arrested on Wednesday 21-year-old Palestinian activist Bushra Taweel after raiding her home in Al-Bireh city in central occupied West Bank, Saffa news agency reported.

Taweel is a former prisoner who was freed as part of the 2011 Shalit deal.

Local sources said that, “A large Israeli military force raided the house of Hamas leader Jamal Taweel in the Umm Sharayet neighbourhood in Al-Bireh and ransacked its contents.”

The sources described how the Israeli soldiers then brutally arrested his daughter Bushra and took her to an unknown location.

The sources noted that violent clashes broke out between Palestinian youths and Israeli occupation forces following the incident.

Taweel’s father Jamal is currently detained in an Israeli jail, while her mother has been arrested in the past and spent several months in administrative detention.
