Israeli forces release Jerusalemite

Jerusalem – Ma’an – Israeli forces released a Jerusalemite from prison on Monday, after he served seven years in detention centers on "security charges," the Prisoners Center said.

Amer Basem Yousef Nasser Ad-Din, 28, from Jerusalem's Wadi Joz neighborhood was detained on 6 July 2003. He was taken from a flying checkpoint set up in Silwan and held at the Russian Compound for several days of questioning and was later convicted.
