Israel bans Al-Aqsa Imam from entering West Bank
Cii Radio|Ayesha Ismail|11 May 2018| 24 Shabaan 1439
Israeli occupation intelligence forces yesterday banned the Imam of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Ekrema Sabri, from entering the occupied West Bank for four months.
Sabri was summoned to a police station and handed the order to the head of the Higher Islamic Committee.
Earlier this month, the Israeli occupation authorities issued a one-month travel ban against Sabri.
The Imam told the Palestinian Information Centre that the “oppressive, illegal, and arbitrary” ban can be renewed for another four months.
He added that this is the fifth such order issued against him in recent years.
Sabri has long called for Palestinians to rise up to protect Al-Aqsa Mosque and stand against the occupation.
