JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Magistrate Court of Jerusalem extended the detention of the governor of Jerusalem for three days, along with other Fatah movement members, on Thursday.

Sources told Ma'an that the Israeli Magistrate Court of Jerusalem extended the detention of Adnan Ghaith, the governor of Jerusalem, until Sunday.

Ghaith was detained last Sunday after Israeli forces raided his home in Silwan town.

The court also extended the detention of the Fatah movement’s secretary in Jerusalem, Adel Abu Zneid, until Monday.
