The occupation authorities deported today the brothers of Martyr Fouad Abu Rajab to the West Bank under the pretext of illegally staying in the city of Jerusalem.

Lawyer Mohammad Mahmoud explained in a statement that the occupation authorities requested this morning the Martyr’s mother, his 19-year old sister Reem, 16-year old sister Rose, 15-year old Mahmoud and 14-year old Mohammad to the police center at Al-Maskobyeh in West Jerusalem. After interrogating them, the intelligence decided to deport them to the West Bank under the pretext of illegally staying in Jerusalem since they are holders of West Bank ID. The decision did not include the Martyr’s mother since she hold an Israeli ID.

The lawyer added that the intelligence informed them that their “reunion” applications have been cancelled and will not be approved.

He also explained that the police transferred the Martyr’s family members to Qalandia checkpoint in a police car.

On the other hand, the judge extended the arrest of the Martyr’s father until next Monday under the pretext of helping his son carry out the shooting attack in Jerusalem.

Fouad Abu Rajab passed away last Tuesday during an armed clash with the Israeli forces in the middle of Salah Eddin Street in Jerusalem.
