Israel arrests son of Palestinian peace activist in West Bank raid
Israel security forces arrested three West Bank Palestinians suspected of involvement with terrorist activity late Friday night, including the son of a prominent peace activist.

The three residents of Beit Ommar, north of Hebron, were detained in a joint operation led by members of both Israel Defense Forces and Shin Bet units.

One of those arrested is the son of Khaled Abu-Awwad, the General Manager of the Israeli-Palestinian Bereaved Families Forum.

Abu-Awwad has been known in recent years as a prominent peace activist, who advocates dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis despite the fact hat he had lost a brother to IDF fire.

"Collaborators" aren't loved.
