Israeli forces, on Sunday, detained an elderly Palestinian mother from the town of Tel, southwest of the occupied West Bank district of Nablus, during a family visit to her detained son, in the Israeli Gilboa Prison, according to her son.

The son, Iyad Ishtaiyeh, said his 80-year-old mother, Zahra Ishtaiyeh, who suffers from chronic illnesses, was detained by Israeli forces as she was waiting in front of Gilboa prison to see her detained son, Jawad.  She was taken to an unknown destination.

No reason was given for the arrest, according to WAFA.

Jawad has served 16 years out of his 30-years sentence in Israeli jails.
