JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- An Israeli military court on Tuesday extended the detention of former hunger striker Samer al-Issawi until June 29, a prisoners group said.

Lawyer Mufid al-Hajj from the Palestinian Prisoners Society told Ma'an that al-Issawi would appeal against the decision.

Israeli forces on Monday re-arrested al-Issawi from his house in al-Issawiya village in East Jerusalem.

Issawi was released from Israeli jail last December as part of an agreement in which he ended a 266-day hunger strike, during which time he became an international cause célèbre who focused attention on the plight of the thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons.
