Petah Tikva Magistrates Court Tuesday extended the custody of Majdal al-Shams espionage suspect by ten days.

The suspect has been named as Mahmoud Matzrawa, aged 62.

The suspect was the third person to be taken into custody this month in the case. Earlier in July, a musician named Fada Sha'ar was arrested in on similar charges, provoking a near-riot in Majdal Shams, a Druse village in the Golan Heights. His father was arrested two days later.
