An Israeli court on Wednesday extended or two days the detention of a Palestinian journalist from occupied East Jerusalem, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Lama Ghosheh, 32, is a mother of two children and a graduate student at Birzeit University. She was detained at her home in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah on Sunday.

Her cellular phone and computer were seized by Israeli soldiers.

It is believed her detention is related to her work as a journalist and her defense of Sheikh Jarrah’s homes against the illegal takeover by Jewish settlers.
