The captive “Um Munther”, who works handmade, was going to the city of Bethlehem, to be surprised at Etzion checkpoint that she became under detention, and she was handcuffed and placed inside the jeep of the Israeli military to transfer her to the prison.
Abu Munther the captive’s husband, confirmed to Ahrar center for Prisoners studies and human rights, that since the arrest of his wife, the family was unable to visit her only once, because of the security refusal to the family members.
Abu Munther added, that the family is greatly worried about um Munther because she suffers from high blood pressure, nerve pain in the neck vertebrae, and the family looks forward to allow them to visit her, especially since the Israeli prison administration does not offer her only painkillers.
Abu Munther, said that his wife is the basis of his house, the boys miss their mother very much.
Abu Munther added, that the most beautiful moment was when their sons , Monther and Rizk had new babies, it was very difficult moment, because um Munther was always dreaming to see her grandchildren, to play with them, but now they grow up away from her eyes.
