MK Bassel Ghattas (Joint List), who has been stripped of his immunity and arrested in extraordinary circumstances following the allegation he smuggled phones and SIM cards to two Palestinian terrorists sitting in an Israeli jail, has had his detention extended by four days until Monday, 26 December, by the Rishon Lezion magistrates court on Friday.

Ghattas visited Ketziot Prison, some 70 km. southwest of Beersheba, on December 18, where he met with Walid Daka, who is serving a life sentence for torturing and murdering 19-year-old soldier Moshe Tamam in 1984, and with Bassel Basra, who is serving a 15-year sentence for security offenses. Both men are Fatah members.
