The Magistrate court judge extended the arrest of 34-year old Jawad Burqan from the neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah until Monday on charges of assaulting policemen. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that the Magistrate court judge extended the arrest of Jawad Burqan and released the 14-year old Eyad Burqan, 49year old Amin Burqan, 47-year old Abdulrahman Burqan, 22-year old Abood Ramawi and 23-year old Firas Ramawi. The Israeli forces arrested the six citizens on Saturday after clashes broke out in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah across from “Al-Sumoud Camp” after the police attempted to arrest two children from the camp under the pretext of throwing stones at an Israeli police car that was passing-by in the area.
