"I have heard that Thair was taken from his home at 2am on 28/29 May by the Israelis. Thair was expecting to be imprisoned: he warned his wife before they married that she might have to bring children up on her own. Their son is about 5 months old.
He was expecting to be arrested because he is a prominent activist in the resistance, in the Bab al Shams project & he was involved in organising events for Nakba Day this year.
Thair was imprisoned as a youth & he knows what Israeli prisons are like for Palestinians but he has carried on with his work. He is a very brave young man.
I am trying to get more information & will let you know if I learn anything. Thair & I became quite close in April, taking train journeys together & going through the anxieties about Abdallah - We came to say that I am his fourth mother: his birth mother, his foster mother who looked after him while his mother was busy about her imprisoned husband, his prison mother when he was the youngest prisoner, then me. So I can't help feeling more deeply about Thair's arrest than that of the many, many other Palestinians undergoing the same ordeal."
