On Monday evening, the occupation intelligence extended the arrest of a freed prisoner from the town of Silwan until Tuesday, and arrested two boys.

The lawyer of the Wadi Hilweh Information Center, Muhammad Mahmoud, explained that the occupation intelligence extended the detention of the young man, Ahmed Shweiki 34, until Tuesday, after he refused the conditions for his release, which consisted of deportation to the town of Al-Eizariya until Thursday, not to raise Islamic flags, and to sign a bail of 20 thousand shekels, in addition to not holding celebrations in the streets.

On Monday, the Negev prison administration released Shweiki after spending 20 years in prison; he was arrested when he was 14 years old.
