Jerusalem, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation extended on Saturday afternoon the travel ban issued against Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in the Palestinian territories occupied in 1948.


Human rights groups reported that the Israeli occupation authorities renewed an order banning Sheikh Salah from travelling abroad until 13 September, renewable for six months due to alleged “security reasons”.


In mid-February, the Israeli occupation minister of interior Ayelet Shaked issued Sheikh Salah a one-month travel ban, subject to a 6-month extension.


Besides the travel ban, Sheikh Salah has been subjected to house arrest and detained by Israeli occupation authorities several times.


On 13 December 2021, the Israeli occupation authorities released Sheikh Salah after imprisoning him for 17 months.


Sheikh Salah was subjected to a 15-year forced banishment from the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.


Since 2010, Sheikh Salah had been jailed over several stints for his peaceful activism against the Israeli occupation's racist policies targeting Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
