HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday arrested a woman who was on her way to visit her jailed husband, her family said.
Maysoon Abd al-Jaleel Muhammad al-Sweiti, 34, was arrested at the al-Thahiriyya checkpoint near Hebron, her brother told Ma'an.
He said al-Sweity was on her way to visit her husband, who was transferred to al-Ramla prison clinic on Sunday because he was experiencing neurological complications after he was given the wrong medication.
This is the second time al-Sweity has been arrested, her brother said.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the arrest.
Mahmoud Abd al-Aziz al-Sweity has been in jail for seven years of a 22-year sentence.
