The District Court in Jerusalem sentenced last Tuesday three young Jerusalemite men and convicted them with throwing Molotov Cocktails towards settlers’ vehicles in the neighborhood of Beit Hanina north of Jerusalem in response to burning Dawabsheh family. 

Amjad Abu Asab, head of Jerusalemite detainees and prisoners families committee, explained that the District judge sentenced 20-year old Wisam “Mohammad Saleh” Salah Castero for 10 years of actual imprisonment and a 15-thousand NIS fine, and also sentenced his 18-year old brother Nour Eddin for 5 years of actual imprisonment while 18-year old Ahmad Azmi Hammoudeh Bakri was sentenced for 8 years in prison and a 10-thousand NIS fine; they were all arrested a year ago.

Isolation from Al-Aqsa Mosque

The occupation intelligence handed Al-Aqsa guard, Hamzeh Nimer, an order to isolate him from Al-Aqsa Mosque until 29/10/2016; he was arrested last Monday and was released on condition of going to the police center on Tuesday for interrogation.

Extensions of arrest

On the other hand, lawyer Mohammad Mahmoud explained that the judge extended the arrest of Maher Hindi until 19/9/2016 when the so-called conduct officer will release his report.

The judge also extended the arrest of Mahmoud Shawish and Amjad Abu Sneineh until 7/9/2016, Yousef Abu Jom’a until completing the legal procedures against him and Dia’ Kawasmi until 22/9/2016.


The judge decided to release last Monday Abed Barbar with a third-party bail of 5 thousand NIS, and decided to release Abdel Hakim Suboh with a 2500-NIS bail and house-arrest for 5 days but the public prosecution requested to freeze the decision until they appeal it; the judge also released Adel Mahmoud unconditionally.
