Israel orders five Palestinians to stay away from Jerusalem

 

JERUSALEM, Sunday, July 28, 2019 (WAFA) – An Israeli court ordered today five Palestinians from occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya to stay away from the city for two weeks, as a precondition for their release from Israeli custody, the Jerusalem-based Wadi Hilweh Information Center said.

The center said the five Palestinians who received stay-away orders are Ahmad Zumurrud, Ahmad Khdour, Wadee Elayyan, Malek Mustafa and Nayef Ebeid.

It described the orders as a means of collective punishment against the entire citizens of al-Issawiya, in the aftermath of recent protests in the neighborhood sparked by Israel forces’ murder of Palestinian youth Mohammad Ebeid.

Israel has illegally occupied East Jerusalem since the 1967 war. In 1980, it annexed the entire city, claiming it as its “eternal and undivided” capital, a move never recognized by the international community.
