JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested the brother of a jailed cartoonist on Wednesday in a pre-dawn raid on his home near Jenin in the northern West Bank, his wife said.

Israeli troops raided the home of Thamer Sabaana, 37, in Qabatiya at around 2.30 a.m. and detained him. They also confiscated his laptop and cell phone, his wife told Ma'an.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Thamer Sabaana is a teacher and an activist for prisoners' rights. He has previously served three years in Israeli jails.

His brother, the cartoonist Mohamed Sabaana, was detained on Feb. 16 as he returned to the West Bank from Jordan. The media watchdog Mada has demanded the 34-year-old's release.

This is who Israel was after all along. They jailed the cartoonist in order to grab his brother who works for prisoners' affairs. This is a common tactic employed by the IOF.

Arrest an activist for prisoners' rights. What else could be expected of the (non democratic, non human rights believers) the belligerent Zionist junta!
