Israeli occupation authorities yesterday released four Palestinians from the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Silwan placing them under house arrest and preventing them from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque, Quds Press reported.

The Wadi Al-Hilwa Information Centre named the four Palestinians as Uday Gheith, Iyad Gheith, Mueen Gheith and Mohamed Al-Shweeky.

All of them were released on bail of 2,000 shekels ($566) and were placed under house arrest for 14 days. They will be expelled from their neighbourhood for one month.

Israeli occupation forces regularly arrest, expel and put Palestinians under house arrest. Activists have said that this is part of the Judaisation policy which is also the drive for the ban on entry to the Muslim holy site of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
