Waed Tamimi, the brother of Palestinian teen and activist Ahed Tamimi, who has become a symbol of Palestinian resistance, was arrested by Israeli forces during an overnight raid in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. Waed's father, Bassem Tamimi,  still doesn't know the whereabouts of his son, and thinks he was arrested as a form of intimidation. The only members of the family not in prison are the father and his 14 and 12-year-old sons Mohammed and Salem.  The Israeli occupation has been actively persecuting the family for decades over their weekly protests against the theft of their lands in favor of the illegal Jewish settlement of Halamish near their villages. Several members of the family have been detained and killed over the years. According to a Palestinian prisoners' human rights group, about 6,036 Palestinians are being held in occupation prisons as of April 2018.
