46 Palestinian detainees from Jerusalem released on bail

Aug. 15, 2014 11:52 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 15, 2014 9:32 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities will release 46 Palestinian detainees from Jerusalem on Friday, a prisoner rights group said.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society said that the detainees, three of whom are children, will be released on bail.

Fourteen will be released from Ashkelon prison and 29 from the Russian Compound detention center near Jaffa Street in West Jerusalem.

Muhammad Zeidani, Ahmad Furukh and Ali al-Abbasi were identified as minors. They will be released from Ofek prison.

The detainees form part of nearly 600 Palestinians arrested in Jerusalem since the murder of teenager Muhammad Abu Khdeir.

Most of those detained were arrested for taking part in demonstrations protesting his death, with the arrest campaign lasting for at least four weeks.

This week, over 100 Palestinians were detained in East Jerusalem.
