The Israeli authorities released the Palestinian activist, Muhammad al-Kurd, from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem, hours after the release of his sister, Mona, who was arrested on Sunday morning.
The Israeli forces arrested the activist Mona Al-Kurd on Sunday morning, during a campaign of raids and searches of the residents of Silwan town and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and transferred her to the intelligence service.
Hours after her arrest, the Israeli police announced in a statement that she had been released after her arrest on charges of “participating in riots and violence.”
During the campaign of raids and searches, many activists of the People’s Committees were handed summon notices for investigation.
The Israeli forces also handed the father of Mona Al-Kurd a summons to his son Muhammad, while Iyad Abu Sanieh was summoned for investigation, and the head of the Batn Al-Hawa neighborhood committee, Zuhair Al-Rajbi, was arrested, after he was summoned for investigation by the Israeli intelligence in Old Jerusalem.
Palestinian media reported that Muhammad al-Kurd surrendered to the Israeli authorities after the arrest of his sister.
