OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– An Israeli court handling the case of kidnapped Palestinian engineer Dhurar Abu Sisi has extended the detention of the engineer for eight more days after Israeli interrogators failed to prove the alleged charges against him.

Hebrew sources revealed that the Israeli Mossad obtained the permission of the “state prosecutor” to extend the detention of Abu Sisi for eight days more that prompted the court to grant the extension although he has been under interrogation for more than a month now.

According to the sources, the government prosecutor wasn’t satisfied with the results of the investigation because “he couldn’t indict Abu Sisi based on them”. He, however, urged the investigators to extract more confessions from the Palestinian engineer.

The court held the hearing behind closed doors and ordered media blackout on the case.

Abu Sisi is the operation engineer of the Gaza power plant. He was kidnapped last February 19 by the Israeli Mossad while in the Ukraine applying for citizenship being married to a Ukrainian woman.

Family, wife, and children of Abu Sisi urged the Israeli authorities to immediately release and return him to his children.
