RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian journalist from Jerusalem while he was returning to Israel from Egypt on Thursday.

Mohammad Abu Khdeir, an East Jerusalem resident with permanent Israeli residency who works for al-Quds newspaper, was stopped by Israeli authorities at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport and detained.

A lawyer for the Palestinian Prisoners' Society, Ahmad Safiya, said that the Israeli court at Beersheba held a session for Abu Khdeir and extended his detention until Nov. 13.

Safiya added that the court prevented Abu Khdeir access to a lawyer.

The family of Abu Khdeir said that Israeli police had raided their house and confiscated many of Mohammad's personal belongings.

A Ben Gurion airport spokesman could not be reached for comment.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
