Israeli authorities ban 4 Palestinian brothers from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities banned four Palestinian brothers from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem in an ongoing crackdown on Jerusalemites following a two-week civil disobedience campaign against Israeli policies at Al-Aqsa, sources told Ma’an on Saturday.

Ahmad, Muath, and Muayyad Idriss were detained by Israeli forces earlier this week, with the brothers saying that Israeli forces assaulted them during the detention. Mahmoud Idriss was detained later in the week. The four brothers live in a house beside Al-Aqsa’s Council Gate.

Sources told Ma’an that Israeli authorities decided to release the four brothers on the condition that they pay a fine of 1,000 shekels ($280) each, be placed on house arrest for five days, and observe a ban on entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for 45 days.

Scores of Palestinians have been detained or banned from entering Al-Aqsa following a mass civil disobedience campaign last month against Israeli security restrictions on the holy site.
