Nablus – Ma'an – An Israeli military court operating in the West Bank detention center of Salem in Jenin delayed the hearing of a young woman, and extended her detention for the 40th consecutive time.

Following the court hearing, Breik's mother said "The Israeli [military] judges have decided to review the case until March 16."

Breik's mother added that, following each trial in front of a military tribunal, her daughter would be transferred to the hearing in a vehicle used to transport prisoners and underwent harsh treatment at the hands of Israeli authorities.
