Giwara Buderi was released on Saturday, several hours after being taken into custody at Sheikh Jarrah. After this, he was sent to the hospital for treatment of the hand, whose bone was broken. It is not known how the bone in his hand was broken, but his close friends have accused the police of misbehavior.
