Israeli forces ban 3 Jerusalemite Palestinian women from Al-Aqsa Mosque

Sept. 29, 2017 2:30 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 7, 2017 9:25 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli magistrate's court decided on Thursday to release two Palestinian women from occupied East Jerusalem from Israeli detention.

Sources told Ma’an that the court ruled to release Hanadi al-Halawani and Khadijeh Khweis on the condition of being banned from entering the al-Aqsa mosque for one month, two weeks of house arrest, and being banned from entering the occupied West Bank and travelling out of the country for 180 days.

It remained unclear why the two women were detained, and for how long they were in Israeli custody.

Meanwhile, Israeli authorities banned on Wednesday a Jerusalemite Palestinian school teacher and activist from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem for a month.

Israeli intelligence summoned Shiha Bkeirat to the al-Qishla police station in the Old City of Jerusalem and handed her an order banning her from entering Al-Aqsa.
