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.
