Israeli occupation forces arrested Najah Amin al-Ateli, mother of released prisoner Abeer Odeh, at her home in Rahat City on Thursday.The Palestine News Network reported that the Israeli intelligence service, Shabak, arrested al-Ateli after a raid on her home despite the fact that she suffers from several health problems.

Al-Ateli has had seven of her children arrested by Israeli authorities, and one child was killed by Israeli forces in 2007. Her son Abeer was released as part of Gilad Shalit’s exchange deal last year.
