BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Sabha Abu Srour, the mother of veteran Palestinian prisoner Mahmoud Abu Srour, died Saturday at 80 before she was able to see her son return to his home in Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem, a Ma'an reporter said.

Abu Srour was buried Saturday afternoon at the cemetery near Rachel's Tomb. Her husband had died a few years earlier.

Mahmoud Abu Srour was detained by Israeli troops 24 years ago.

He is one of 26 veteran Palestinian prisoners, jailed before Oslo agreement of 1993, who remain in Israeli custody. It was agreed that Israel would release them as the fourth and final group of 104 pre-Oslo prisoners in a gesture to the Palestinian Authority in return for resuming peace talks.

However, negotiations failed to reach any agreement after nine months when Israel refused to release the fourth group of veteran prisoners and the PLO acceded to various international organizations and treaties.
