Israeli Forces Arrest Addameer’s Senior Staff Member

A senior staff member of Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer has been detained by Israeli occupation forces, the NGO reported.

Ayman Nasser, 48, the coordinator of Addameer’s legal unit, was seized by soldiers from his home in the occupied West Bank on September 9 and is being held without charge or trial in Ofer prison.

Nasser has been arrested on three previous occasions, the last of which was in 2014 when he spent more than a year under administrative detention (without charge or trial).

Nasser’s wife told Addameer that soldiers broke into the house at 2:00 am, waking up the children and keeping the entire family in the living room while they were searching the house. The NGO added that there were some ten soldiers inside the house and tens of soldiers outside the house.

The group also called on the international community to seriously work towards holding the Israeli occupation accountable for its crimes and to release all Palestinian detainees.
