OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation regime decided on Friday evening to extend the detention of the two Jerusalemite officials Mohamed Totah and Khaled Abu Arafa for five days and refer their files to its central court.

The Israeli magistrates’ court in occupied Jerusalem decided to extend their detention at the behest of the military prosecutor and the intelligence apparatus on charges of their affiliation with Hamas Movement and their presence in the holy city, according to an informed source from the office of Hamas change and reform parliamentary bloc in Ramallah city.

The source added that the court referred the files of Totah and Abu Arafa to the central court to issue a final verdict on their presence in Jerusalem (their native city) especially after an Israeli court decision had been issued a few years ago ordering their exile from their city.
The source expressed his belief that the Israeli court would order their expulsion from their native city Jerusalem as what happened previously with Jerusalemite MPs Mohamed Abu Teir and Ahmed Attoun.

MP Mohamed Totah and former minister Khaled Abu Arafa, two native residents of Jerusalem, were kidnapped from the Red Cross headquarters in Jerusalem, where they were peacefully resisting for about 19 months an Israeli arbitrary decision ordering their exile from their native city because of their political affiliation.
