The Magistrate judge extended on Saturday night the arrest of a Jerusalemite girl until Sunday for further interrogation.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center’s lawyer, Khaldoun Nijem, explained that the Magistrate judge extended the arrest of Mai Bassam Assaileh (14) until Sunday for interrogation on charges of “possession of a knife and pepper spray”.

Lawyer Nijem added that the girl was arrested from the military checkpoint of Shu’fat refugee camp checkpoint, and the occupation authorities extended her arrest for 24 hours. She was presented to court on Saturday night and the police requested to extend her arrest for five days. After hearing the lawyer’s deliberations, the judge decided to extend her arrest until tomorrow.
