Israeli forces arrested a researcher from Addameer human rights organization overnight Sunday, the group said.
Ayman Nasser, 42, was arrested at 1 a.m. from his home in the village of Saffa, west of Ramallah. The group is not aware of the reason for his arrest and has not yet managed to contact Nasser or arrange a visit, reported Ma'an News agency.
A large number of soldiers ransacked Nasser's family home and confiscated his mobile phone and parts of his computer, his wife told Addameer.
Nasser is a research and advocacy officer with the human rights group and had previously served six years in Israeli jails.
An Israeli military spokesman said the army arrested two people in the village of Saffa overnight, but had no further details about Nasser's arrest.
