Israel extends detention of Sheikh Jarrah teen

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli police extended by one day the detention of Ayman Al-Ghawi, 19, from the East Jerusalem of Shiekh Jarrah, his family reported Thursday.

Al-Ghawi was detained while he was with his mother in the nearby Wadi Aj-Joz neighborhood after an Israeli settler living in the occupied area filed a complaint against the boy, when he hit the settler's dog with his backpack.

Maysoon, Ayman’s mother, accused the settler of intentionally releasing his dog on her son as they passed by the man's home. When the dog approached, she said Ayman used took off his backpack and used it as a shield, pushing the dog away with force. The dog retreated back to its home.

The two continued on their way, when a police car appeared and stopped them in the street, Maysoon said. At that point she explained that Ayman was detained.

"Should he just stand there while the dog bites him?" she asked.
