HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israel's military court Ofer extended the detention of a 22-year-old journalist from Hebron on Wednesday.

In a statement, the the detainees’ center representing the southern West Bank city said that the court postponed the session considering Mosaab Shawer's arrest until May 5.

The center said Shawer's work at a Hebron radio station focused on prisoners issues. He was arrested on Feb. 25 from his home without any prior warning, the center said.
