A court in Nazareth in the occupied territories' north extended his remand until Sunday, when he was released "under limitations, including a five-day house arrest," occupation police said.

In an interview with Beirut-based Al-Alam on Sunday, Safadi said he was "accused of incitement to terrorism, supporting terror organizations and standing behind terror organizations."

Hussein Mortada, head of Al-Alam's office in Syria, said on Wednesday that the arrest was part of a "systematic campaign" by Israel against the media.

The Zionist entity seized 1,200 square kilometers (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the international community.
