Israeli troops fear three female Palestinians who defend Al Aqsa Mosque holy site
JERUSALEM - An Israeli court has ruled that three Palestinian female activists are no longer allowed to stay in the vicinity of a gate of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied Old City of East Jerusalem al-Quds.
The court in Jerusalem al-Quds issued a verdict at the request of the Israeli police, preventing Palestinian activists Hinadi al-Halawani, Aida Sidawi and Madlin Issa from approaching the complex’s al-Silsila (Chain) Gate not closer than 200 meters for the next 60 days.
The verdict came after the three activists were protesting on a daily basis at the gate against an earlier court ruling, which had prevented them from entering the al-Aqsa Mosque for several months.
The Palestinian women were banned from entering the compound for their role in defending the holy site against Israeli settlers’ almost regular violations, Press TV has reported.
