OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Ahrar center for prisoners’ studies and human rights has denounced the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) for arresting Dr. Amani Ode from Bustan suburb in occupied Jerusalem at dawn Wednesday.

Amjad Abu Asab, in charge of Jerusalemite prisoners, said IOF soldiers stormed the suburb before dawn and broke into the home of Dr. Amani and wreaked havoc on it before taking her away.

He said that young men threw stones at the soldiers who fired rubber-coated bullets indiscriminately. He added that the wife of detainee Mohammed Ode, Amani’s brother, was hit with a bullet in the face and was hospitalized.

Fuad Al-Khafsh, the center’s director, charged the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) with intensifying attacks on occupied Jerusalem especially after its inhabitants organized solidarity campaigns with the detained hunger strikers.

Dr. Amani Ode is the daughter of liberated prisoner Mousa Ode, who is now a member of the Bustan committee that was formed after the IOA decided to raze dozens of houses in the suburb.
