RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military court of Petch Tikva extended, on Wednesday, the detention of a Palestinian journalist, who was detained on Monday, for 12 days.

Journalist Hussein Shujaiya, 32, is from the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, and was detained by Israeli forces during predawn raids.
The Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS) said that the Petah Tikva court also prevented Shujaiya from meeting with his lawyer.

Additionally, trial for another Palestinian journalist, Samih Manasra, 28 ,from the northern West Bank district of Tulkarem, was postponed until Thursday, to be held at the Israeli military court of Salem.

The court also issued an order preventing Manasra from meeting with his lawyer.

Manasra was detained by Israeli forces two days ago, after Israeli soldiers raided and searched his home during predawn raids.

Palestinian journalists often describe their work as a form of "resistance," as they believe their stories show the world the devastating effects of Israel's policies on Palestinians and provide Palestinians an outlet for their voices in a media climate that is often overshadowed by pro-Israeli narratives.
