Local sources reported that Qa’daan lives her brothers, Tareq, Mahmoud and Moawiya, who are also former political prisoners.

The Maan News Agency reported that Qa’daan was previously kidnapped by the army four times, and spent a total of three years in prison.

She was first kidnapped in 1999, and was only released after she conducted a hunger strike that lasted for one month.

The last time she was kidnapped and imprisoned was on May 31, 2011, and was released on December 18, 2011, under the prisoner-swap deal reached between the resistance and Israel in which Israeli corporal Gilad Shalit was released in exchange for the release of over a 1000 Palestinian political prisoners.

After her arrest in 2011, Qa’daan was placed in solitary confinement and conducted a 16-day hunger strike until she was moved out of solitary.
