Sheikh Khaled’s wife told PIC’s reporter that the Israeli court has extended her husband’s detention, under the pretext that he is still under investigation at Jalama prison.

She expressed concern about the conditions of detention of her husband, who had previously served in the occupation jails more than 11 years, mostly in administrative detention.

The Hamas leader Khaled al-Hajj was arrested two weeks ago from his home in the city of Jenin, under the framework of a campaign of mass arrests recently waged against cadres and supporters of the resistance movement in the province.

Meanwhile, Tadhamun Foundation for Human Rights reported that the Israeli Salem Court has decided on Thursday afternoon to release university lecturer Professor Issam Rashid al-Ashqar, while it sentenced another Mr. Mustafa Shunnar, who suffers from cardiac problems, to 3 months of administrative detention.

The two lecturers, working at An-Najah National University, were arrested three days ago during raids of their houses in the area of Ma’ajin near Nablus.
