District court extends detention of pro-Aqsa activist
The Israeli district court in Occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday extended the detention of pro-Aqsa activist Khadija Khuwais until next Sunday.
Captive Khuwais complained about being forced to take off her robe and hijab (headscarf) while being isolated in solitary confinement cells.
Khuwais had received a court verdict ordering her release on bail, but the same court delayed her release after the prosecutor objected to its decision. Later the prosecutor took the case to the district court, where he managed to extract an extension to her detention.
Khuwais was detained on September 5 after she was summoned for interrogation by the Israeli police in Jerusalem.
The female Jerusalemite activist, who is banned from entering the Aqsa Mosque, was rallying peacefully every day with other women at Israeli police barriers outside the holy site. She had been exposed to persecution and arrests several times before by the police.
