JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli court ruled, late Thursday, that five Jerusalemite youths from the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan, in occupied East Jerusalem, are banned from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

According to the Wadi Hilweh Information Center, the five Jerusalemite youths were detained earlier this week, after Israeli forces raided their homes in Silwan.

The center confirmed that an Israeli court banned the youths from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound and its premises for one consecutive month.

The ruling was a precondition for their release from Israeli detention, however, the youths were also sentenced to pay a fine of 1,000 shekels ($280) each upon their release.

The center identified the banned Jerusalemites as Majdi al-Abbasi, Alaa Abu Tayih, Ali Abu Diab, Adi Ghaith and Muhammad Ghaith. 

Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque; the third holiest site in Islam, it is also venerated as Judaism's most holy place, as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood.
