The IDF raided the home of released Palestinian prisoner Sammer al-Issawi in Jerusalem on Sunday, arresting his brother and sister, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Issawi was arrested along with over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in a prisoner-exchange deal Israel signed with Hamas last October to free captive soldier Gilad Schalit.

Issawi was detained, himself, after his release last October, according to Palestinian news network WAFA.
