An Israeli court refused the conditional release of Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel.
According to the lawyer Khaled Zabarqah, Haifa District Court refused to release Sheikh Salah after Israeli Public Prosecution appealed against his conditional release.
The court’s order came following the Israeli Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan’s call for keeping Sheikh Salah in prison, the lawyer added.
Last week, the Magistrate’s Court accepted to release Sheikh Salah and to place him under house arrest.
According to the terms of his release, Salah will wear an electronic tag, be prohibited from using the internet or mobile phones, be banned from holding public meetings or giving speeches and has had a travel ban imposed on him.
“We will respond to the court’s ruling in the appropriate time,” Zabarqah said.
Sheikh Salah was arrested from his house on 25 August 2017 and was indicted nine days later by the Israeli Public Prosecution over incitement charges.
