GSS officers reportedly called Atwa's family to inform them he was being held and was under investigation. According to Atwa's lawyer he was travelling with a group of "young people" from Gaza,...

Inhibition of that enzyme causes drugs to stay in the body longer, potentially overdosing the patient. Doctors subsequently advised many patients not to consumer the juice...
