JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities released, on Tuesday evening, seven Jerusalemites from detention on the condition of being banned from the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem.

Nasser Qaws, head of the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS), said that the Israeli court decided to release seven Jerusalemites on the condition of being banned from the Old City of Jerusalem for four days.

Qaws identified them as Raed Zughayyar, Haitham al-Halawani, Thaer Abu Sbeih, Rami al-Fakhouri, Murad al-Ashhab, Hamza Zughayyar and Mahmoud al-Mwanas.

He pointed out that the Israeli authorities extended the detention of two Palestinians, who were identified as Jihad Qaws and Ghaith Nasser Ghaith, to attend a court hearing.

Israeli forces detained the youths from the streets leading up to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the Old City and repeatedly assaulted them before taking them to an Israeli police station.

Israeli forces also detained a Palestinian, who was identified as Muhammad Abu Shusha, from near the Lions Gate, one of the gates to the compound, on Tuesday evening.
