JERUSALEM, Thursday, Israeli authorities Thursday banned Jerusalem Governor Adnan Ghaith from entry to the West Bank for six consecutive months.
Ghaith was summoned Thursday morning to al-Maskobieh detention and interrogation center, where he was handed a military order banning him entry to the West Bank for six consecutive months.
The order, issued by the so-called Israeli Military Central Command Chief Major General Nadav Padan, bans Ghaith from entering and staying in the West Bank unless granted a permission by Padan himself.
The ban was ordered under the pretext of participation in illegal and violent activities.
In November, Ghaith was rounded up from his house in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan allegedly for being involved in the arrest and investigation of a Palestinian merchant who sold lands to Israeli settlers.
