JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – An Israeli magistrate court in Jerusalem on Wednesday decided to keep hunger striking Palestinian women in custody until Friday, a local committee speaker said.

Amjad Abu Asab of a committee representing families of Jerusalem prisoners highlighted that Umm Muhammad, wife of Ahmad Ubeid, who is serving life sentence in Israeli custody, was detained last Friday.

She was in court to attend a hearing for her son Anas who was detained a day before, when an Israeli intelligence officer asked her to accompany him to an office for a couple of questions.

Surprisingly, the officer notified Umm Muhammad that she was under arrest without giving any explanation.

The same day, Umm Muhammad announced an open hunger strike protesting her detention without charges. Her husband is serving a life sentence in Israel’s Rimon prison.
