OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up more than 300 Palestinians in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem over the past week, the Palestinian prisoner’s society said.

It added in a press release on Saturday that most of those detained were minors, noting that the IOF was pressuring wanted Palestinians and prisoners by arresting their mothers and relatives.

The IOF last Tuesday detained Dina Qawas, 41, and her son Jihad, 16, in occupied Jerusalem at the pretext of participating in a demonstration and disturbing the public order, the society said.

It added that the woman was released on Friday night after an Israeli court sentenced her to home arrest for five days in addition to signing a bail of around 8,000 dollars.
