The Ahrar Center for Detainees Studies and Human Rights reported that Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Monday evening, Soheila Shallash, 40, member of Shaqba village council, west of Ramallah, as she was heading back home after conducting the pilgrimage in Mecca.

The Center slammed the abduction and stated that the Israeli army recently kidnapped several Palestinian women in the occupied West Bank.

Fuad Al Khuffash, head of the center, stated that Soheila is a mother of six children and was elected by the residents of her village in democratic elections.

He stated that Israel continues its violations against the elected Palestinian officials, especially legislators, mayors, members of city councils and continues to detain the head of the legislative council, Dr. Aziz Dweik.

Al Khuffash also said that Israel recently kidnapped several Palestinian women who are members of councils of different villages and cities such as Khould Al Masry, member of Nablus city council.

Furthermore, Al Khuffash stated that Israel recently extended the remand of legislator Mona Mansur for eight more days.  Mansur was moved to Ha-Sharon Israeli prison for women.
