BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained an entire Palestinian family, on Tuesday, in the Aida refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem.

According to the Prisoners and Former Prisoners' Affairs Committee, Israeli forces raided the Aida refugee camp and detained Abed Abu Srour, 60, along with his wife Fadwa Abu Srour, 55, and their daughter, Yasmine Abu Srour, 21, a former prisoner.

Yasmine was previously detained by the Israeli authorities in January and charged with "incitement." She was released on July 26th after seven months of imprisonment.

The committee also confirmed that Yasmine's brother, Khalil Abu Srour, 25, was detained several days ago near the northern entrance of Bethlehem City.

Yasmine's second brother was detained four years ago and was sentenced to 17 years in prison.

The committee denounced Israel's "form of punishment" and detention policy towards Palestinians, which is carried out on the daily and is in violation of international resolutions and treaties.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are currently 5,781 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons, 65 of whom are female prisoners.
