An Israeli court on Friday extended the detention of seven Arabs from Jerusalem for at least three more days for incitement via Facebook, Ma’an reported.
The head of a committee for the families of prisoners in Jerusalem, Amjad Abu Asab, identified the seven prisoners being held by Israeli authorities as Omar al-Shalabi, Uday Sunuqrut, Tareq al-Kurd, Sami Ideis, Ibrahim Abdeen, Nasser al-Hidmi, and Fouad Ruweidi.
The seven were detained last Monday, in response to Facebook posts that Israeli authorities found to contain messages of incitement to violence.
