Israeli military court extends arrest of Jerusalem governor

PNN/ Jerusalem/

The Palestinian Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners commission has submitted a request to the Ofer Military Court, demanding release of the governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Ghaith, who was kidnapped yesterday by Israeli intelligence in the Beit Hanina area of ​​Jerusalem.

The Commission explained that it applied for the urgent release of the governor Ghaith, after the decision of the occupation to extend his detention for 96 more hours, and transferred  him to Ofer military court to be presented to a military judge.

The purpose of the request for the urgent release is to extract a decision to present Governor Ghaith to the court in the coming hours, and to prevent the opportunity of procrastination by the occupation until the extension period expires 96 hours (4 days).

Ghaith was kidnapped by the Israeli intelligence service after his car was intercepted in the Beit Hanina area of ​​Jerusalem. He was immediately transferred to the interrogation center, a few hours after the arrest of Colonel Jihad al-Faqih, head of the Jerusalem intelligence service.
