Israel releases 3 Palestinian activists upon ban

Nov. 28, 2018 10:47 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2018 1:12 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities released three Palestinian activists, who were detained for several hours, on late Tuesday, due to their participation in a peaceful protest in Salah al-Din Street in occupied East Jerusalem.

A Ma'an reporter identified the three activists as Muhammad Abu al-Hummus, member of the Issawiya follow-up committee, Yasser Darwish, the Secretary of the Fatah movement, and Ahed al-Rasheq.

The three activists were released upon being banned from entry to Salah al-Din Street, al-Sultan Suleiman Street, and the Damascus Gate for two consecutive weeks.

All three activists will also attend a court hearing.

The peaceful protest was organized against Israel’s detention of Palestinian Governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Ghaith, and other Fatah movement officials.

Dozens of Palestinians took part in the protest and called for the immediate release of Ghaith and Fatah officials, chanting slogans affirming that the detention of the Jerusalem governor “will not give legitimacy to the Israeli occupation.”
