AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested on Monday the son and the brother of detained Hamas leader Sheikh Ibrahim Jabr, 50, at a military roadblock near Al-Khalil city.

The wife of the Sheikh said that the IOF soldiers detained her sole son Qutaiba, 19, along with his uncle Taiseer, 49, after searching the bus they were commuting, and stole 5,000 shekels that was in their possession.

She said that Taiseer suffers a difficult health condition after surviving a stroke a month ago and undergoing a heart surgery. He is also living with one kidney and had an IOF bullet in his liver since the first intifada in 1987, she added.

She appealed to human rights groups to pressure the IOF to release Taiseer in view of his bad health condition.

Sheikh Ibrahim has been under administrative detention, without trial or charge, for the past 30 months. He had previously served 12 years in Israeli jails and had two sons one of them was killed in a clash with the IOF soldiers in Jenin refugee camp in 2003 while his father was in jail.
