The Israeli occupation forces on Sunday kidnapped an elderly Palestinian woman on her way to visit her son in the Israeli Jilboa jail, north of territories occupied in 1948.

Palestinian citizen Iyad Eshtiyeh said his mother Zahra Eshtiyeh, aged 80, was on her way to visit her son Jawad before she was arrested outside of the Gilboa lock-up.

The Palestinian Red Cross is reportedly following up on the case to find out more about the reasons for her detention.

Prisoner Jawad Eshtiyeh, 42, has been held for the 16th year running in Israeli jails. He was arrested on October 25, 2003 on account of his affiliation with Shuhada al-Aqsa resistance brigade and involvement in anti-occupation operations. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
