JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces released Jawad Siam, director of Wadi Hilweh Information Center, on Sunday, after several hours in detention on charges of “organizing a protest in Salah al-Din Street” in occupied East Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center said that Israeli forces banned Siam from entry to Salah al-Din Street, al-Sultan Suleiman Street, and the Damascus Gate, in addition to a ban on participating in protests in the city for the upcoming two weeks and to pay a bail of 3,000 shekels ($805).

Siam pointed out that Israeli forces detained him on the charges of “organizing a protest in Salah al-Din Street and participating in it.”

Siam organized a protest, during which he was detained, against the extended detention of Palestinian Governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Ghaith.

Local sources said that during the protest, protesters chanted slogans condemning the detention of Ghaith and demanding the release of the Jerusalem governor.
Sources mentioned that Israeli forces physically assaulted protesters and fired sound bombs towards them as they attempted to suppress the peaceful protest.
