Israeli court extends detention of 6 ex-prisoners

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Ofer military court on Thursday extended the detention of six former prisoners recently rearrested during Israel's search campaign for three missing Israelis.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society said detention orders for Nael Barghouthi, Rabee Barghouthi, Ibrahim al-Masri, Ibrahim Shalash, Muayad al-Jallad and Nayif Radwan were extended to July 14, 15 and 16.

All of the men were released in the 2011 swap deal for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Nael Barghouti's wife said Israeli forces accused her husband of breaking the terms of his release, adding that her husband is being held under administrative detention.

Nael was 20 years old when he was detained in April 1978. He was the longest serving Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails, having spent 33 years behind bars for alleged membership of an armed group before his release.

Over 50 prisoners released in the 2011 swap deal for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit have been rearrested in the current campaign and seven have had their release canceled, meaning their previous long-term sentences could be reimposed.

In total, Israel has detained 566 Palestinians in the military campaign, the Palestinian Prisoner's Society said Thursday.
