February 9, 2014

The administration of “Negev” prison released 21-year old Mousa Usama Abbasi from Silwan after completing his 1-year prison sentence in the Israeli prisons. The family of Mousa explained that their son was arrested at the beginning of last April and was sentenced to 7 months of actual imprisonment but the public prosecution appealed the decision and he was then sentenced for 12 months. The Magistrate court judge extended the arrest of 11 Jerusalemites for few more days to continue interrogating them. Mohammad Mahmoud, Al-Dameer organization lawyer, said that the Magistrate court judge extended on Sunday the arrest of 16-year old Ra’ouf Abu Sneineh and 17-year old Mohammad Haitham Naser until Wednesday. The judge released 13-year old Dia’ Naser with a bail of 500 NIS and house arrest for 10 days; note that they were all arrested on Sunday early morning after raiding their homes in the village of Esawyeh. The judge also extended the arrest of 14-year old Ahmad Abu Roumi until Monday and Ahmad Darwish and Mahmoud Abu Roumi until Tuesday. In a related matter, the lawyer of Wadi Hilweh Information Center, Amer Yassin, said that the Magistrate court judge extended the arrest of 15-year old Raed Jada’ from Qalaqilya, 17-year old Fouad Alqaq, 17-year old Ali Da’na, 17-year old Dia’ Sameeh Zghayyar and Ahmad Turki until Sunday on charges of throwing stones in Al-Aqsa Mosque. The public prosecution submitted a prosecutor’s permit to submit an indictment against all of them except Zghayyar; note that they were all arrested on Friday after the Israeli forces broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque. Lawyer Yassin explained that the forces assaulted and severely beaten the child Ali Da’na and Fou’ad Alqaq and the signs of assault were obvious on them. The police released Mustafa Sukkar on condition of isolation from Al-Aqsa Mosque for 15 days.
