An Israeli court in Ofer, meanwhile, extended the detentions of Luai Shawamreh, Qusai Shawamreh, Muhammad Sheikh, Ahmad Obaida, Youssef Sayaareh, Hani Khawaja, and Ahmad Shurukh.

A court in al-Jalama extended the detentions of Qusai al-Wishahi, Ahmad Dawasha, Basel Waked, Nour Ahmad, Imad Abdo, Ahmad Hindawi, Ibrahim Yahiya, Mahdi Amarneh, Wajih Awwad, and Nour al-Din Ajjaj.

An Israeli court in Ashkelon extended the detention of Mahmoud al-Nijmi, Fadi Ammur, Hussein Abu Tammaa, Munir Abu Sharar, Omar Hreinat, Thair Hreini, Thair Awad, Haib Alqam, Muhammad Hasaniyeh, and Ayman Sabbatin.
