HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A detainee in Israeli jail completed his eight and a half year sentence on Wednesday, but his expectant family waited in vain.

Ma'an correspondent learned that Israeli authorities refused to release Raed Samih Qefeisha on the date scheduled according to a decision by Israeli court. No reason was given for the extension of detention.

Qefeisha, from the West Bank city of Hebron, was detained on May 9, 2003 and charged with affiliation to Fatah. He remains in Israeli prison Ramon.
