JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli military court extended the detention of prisoner Samir Issawi until July 1, a lawyer for the Palestinian Prisoner's Society told Ma'an Sunday.

Jawad Bolous said the Israeli prosecution requested that the Israeli court send Issawi to jail to serve the remainder of the punishment he was sentenced to before being released as a part of the Shalit deal.

The Israeli court accepted the request, but neither Issawi nor his lawyer were present for the hearing, so they will be allowed to appeal the decision, Bolous said.

Israeli forces on June 23 re-arrested 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.
