A member of the Palestinian Legislative Council and leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Jarrar was arrested on July 2, 2017, after occupation forces stormed her house in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah. She was immediately placed under administrative detention – imprisonment without charge or trial.
