Israel has arrested a Palestinian lawmaker from a left-wing militant group for disobeying an Israeli order restricting her movement in the West Bank.

The Israeli military says it arrested Khalida Jarrar, a senior political leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, early Thursday in the West Bank city of Ramallah due to "substantial concerns about the safety and security of the region."

Her husband, Ghassan Jarrar, says she was arrested from their Ramallah home.

She had long flaunted the Israeli ban.

Last year, the military confined her movement to the city of Jericho and its surroundings. The army said the restraining order was based on her "incitement and involvement in terror."

The military says it is questioning her but has not yet decided whether to press charges.
