Israeli court rules for Jerusalem governor's release

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli District Court in Jerusalem ruled, on Monday, to release the Palestinian Governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Ghaith, and place him under house arrest for seven days.

Adnan's lawyer, Muhammad Mahmoud, confirmed that the Israeli District Court ruled for Ghaith's release and transferred him to house arrest for seven days, in addition to imposing a fine of 20,000 shekels ($5,467) on him.

Ghaith was appointed two months ago by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as governor of occupied East Jerusalem.

On Saturday, several vehicles, belonging to the special unit of Israeli forces, intercepted another vehicle that was transporting Ghaith in the Beit Hanina neighborhood. He was then forcefully detained and transferred to the Ofer detention center.

The reason for Ghaith's detention remained unclear.
