Abu Obeid, who was on her way back home following medical treatment in the United Arab Emirates, was arrested for no apparent reason.
The Israeli army carries out frequent arrest campaigns across the West Bank – including occupied East Jerusalem – on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians. It also regularly detains Palestinians after trips abroad in an effort to gather intelligence information.
