Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Wadi Hilweh Information Center director Jawad Siyam’s house arrest sentence was extended until March 14 by the Israeli Magistrates Court in Jerusalem yesterday. Israeli police raided Siyam’s house again last night, summoning him to the station this morning.

Two City of David settlement guards employed by Elad testified against Siyam, stating that he had broken the conditions of his house arrest but provided no further evidence.
Israeli police raided Siyam’s family home in Wadi Hilweh district of Silwan last night to arrest him. A crowd of neighbors quickly gathered around the house, several filming the incident with video cameras and refusing to allow police to take Siyam, who eventually agreed to leave without him but issued an order for him to present himself at the police station this morning for investigation.
