BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities banned a Palestinian man from occupied Jerusalem for 30 days on Monday, according to the head of the Jerusalem Committee for Families of Prisoners. 

Amjad Abu Asab told Ma’an that Majid Raghib al-Juaba was released from Israeli prison in March after serving three and a half years. 

Abu Asab added that he was charged for allegedly being affiliated with the Hamas movement, considered illegal by the Israeli government, and “carrying out missions” for the group.

Israeli authorities routinely ban Palestinians with Jerusalem IDs from entering the city for various reasons and durations of time, forcing some into the occupied West Bank and severely disrupting the lives of Palestinians whose lifes are based in Jerusalem.
