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.

A 22 year sentence for what? Sad how Maan always leaves out the salient details.

A prisoner in an Israeli prison given the wrong medication. Mistake or another Israeli medical experiment?

#2: Brian does it matter what he was sentenced for? Two important points come out of the article; 1) The prisoner, due to medical neglect (on the part of the Isreali authorities) was being transferred to a clinic with neurological complications, and 2) The prisoner's wife, was again arrested, simply for trying to visit her husband. Surely these are human rights abuses.

Brian Cohen - you ask for salient details of the 22 year sentence. . . probably for a crime that any Israeli would get a suspended sentence for - or perhaps a medal struck in his honour? (Read about Netanyahu's honouring of those terrorists - some of whom later became Israeli prime ministers - who blew up the King David Hotel, killing, among others, several young Jewish women who happened to be working there at the time. Oh no, wait there, they not terrorists, they're freedom fighters. . . .)
