Israeli authorities released two Palestinian women from detention on the condition that they did not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for the two weeks.

Locals told Ma’an that the two Palestinian women released by Israeli authorities were identified as Nafissa Khweis, 66, and Aida Sidawi from occupied East Jerusalem.

Sources added that the Israeli authorities summoned Khweis to Jerusalem’s Old City Israeli occupation police station on July 29, to recover her identity card as it had previously been confiscated after she left Al-Aqsa.

Upon Khweis’ arrival to obtain her identity card, Israeli forces detained and immediately took her in for interrogation about her presence and worship at the mosque.

Following the interrogation, Khweis was released on condition that she does not enter the Muslim holy site for the next fortnight.
