Israeli Court Orders the Release of Detained Nonviolent Activist
Palestinian nonviolent activist, Bassem Tamimi, 45, from Nabi Saleh village, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, spent more than 13 months in Israeli prisons. Earlier on Friday, an Israeli court rejected an appeal filed by the Israeli prosecution against his release, yet imposed severe restrictions on him including confining him to the Ramallah district.
The court also ruled that Tamimi is to be placed under house arrest Thursday to Saturday every week until further notice. The move is meant to prevent him from joining the weekly nonviolent protests, joined by Israelis and Internationals, against the illegal Israeli Annexation Wall and settlements
