Description Lydia Pintscher 2013-03-09 12:41:14 UTC
"If the mouse-cursor hits a wikilink, a small box opens near the link and shows the lemma the link leads to. There is a problem with interwikilinks in languages written from right to left (Hebrew, Arab), if the lemma of the aim ends with a bracket. The closing bracket at the end  is displayed as opening bracket in the beginning. Example: The German lemma ''[ Zug (Eisenbahn)]'' is displayed  in Arab [قطار] or Hebrew [רכבת] wikipedia in the box as ''(Zug (Eisenbahn'' ."

Bug 49255, bug 45941, bug 45932 might all have the same underlying reason. Anybody who knows the codebase better, feel free to mark as a duplicates.

if not a browser bug, it is a general mediawiki issue.  Nothing the wikidata team can fix.
