BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel on Tuesday detained and interrogated five Palestinians for raising Palestinian flags on their cars in Jerusalem.

Two of those detained were released on bail of 5,000 shekels ($1378) and on condition that they do not raise Palestinian flags as Israel celebrates Independence Day, a Ma'an reporter said.

The three others were released.

Eight others were pulled over by traffic police and fined 250 shekels for having Palestinian flags on their cars.

Israeli flags are raised on buses, cars and buildings across Jerusalem as the country celebrates Independence Day.
