Thamer Saba’aneh, 37, the brother of detained Palestinian cartoonist Mohammad Saba’aneh and a researcher for Ahrar association that supports Palestinian prisoners, was detained on March 4, when his home was invaded in a nighttime raid by Israeli occupation soldiers.
Mohammad Saba’aneh was detained on February 16 as he returned to Palestine from Jordan. His detention has been extended several times for further interrogation. A popular cartoonist, Saba’aneh’s supporters have created a facebook group to draw attention to his case.
Saba’aneh was finally allowed to see a lawyer on March 5, when a lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club visited him for the first time since his detention.
