Israel will officially press charges against female Palestinian journalist Samah Dweik next week, Quds Press reported her family saying yesterday.

Israa, Samah’s sister, told Quds Press that the lawyer informed the family that Samah’s hearing would be held on 16 May.

Israeli occupation forces stormed Samah’s home in the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Silwan on 10 April, arresting her and a number of her family members. She is currently being held in the Israeli prison of Hasharon.
