Israeli court extends detention of Palestinian woman shot in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court in Jerusalem ruled on Monday to extend the detention of a Palestinian woman who was shot and injured by Israeli border police officers on Sunday night.

Khawla Sbeih, 43, was shot by Israeli forces near the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shufat on Sunday. Israeli media reported at the time that the soldiers shot Sbeih, who was wearing a full head and face veil, for acting suspiciously.

Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) lawyer Mufid al-Hajj said that the court held the session on Monday without the presence of Sbeih, who is being treated at the Shaare Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem for a gunshot wound to her leg.

The court extended her detention until Sunday, June 3rd.
