OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli police extended the detention of Sheikh Ra’ed Salah, the leader of the Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, until Wednesday when he is scheduled to appear before the Magistrate court.

The Sheikh’s lawyer Khaled Zabarqa said that Salah was transferred to Maskobeh detention center, adding that his charge was burning a grove in Araqib area in the Negev.

He denounced the Israeli police for the manner Sheikh Salah was apprehended, describing the practice as “illegal”. He said that the police could have summoned the Sheikh instead of chasing then ambushing his car in occupied Jerusalem.

Zabarqa charged that the practice was an attempt to “terrorize” the Sheikh.
