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.

The nine detainees were identified as Alaa Abu al-Hawa, Amer Awwad, Fadi Mahmoud, Hussam Abu Isnineh, Khalil Bashir, Muhammad al-Qaq, Ahmad Mustafa, Iyad Hadra and Hatem Mahlus.

The court had released three of those detained last Monday, on Wednesday, and 21 others earlier Thursday, on the condition of being banner entry to the West Bank for two weeks, being held under house arrest for five days and paying a bail of 1000 ILS each.
