Israeli court rejects Raed Salah appeal

July 22, 2010 9:33 P.M. (Updated: July 23, 2010 8:32 P.M.)
Jerusalem - Ma'an - Israel’s High Court rejected a petition on Thursday appealing Raed Salah's five month sentence for spitting on a border guard in 2007.

The leader of the Islamic Movement in northern Israel will begin his sentence on Sunday.

The incident occurred during a rally against construction at the Mughrabi gate, in the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem. Salah was arrested and banned from entering within 150 meters of the Mosque.

The sheikh was also banned from meeting with more than six people in public in Jerusalem, his lawyers said in a statement.

His lawyers added that Salah is going to prison for a crime committed by the occupation against Al-Aqsa mosque.
