Deputy head of Northern Branch of Islamic Movement released under restrictions

A court in Nazareth orders the release of Sheikh Kamal al-Khatib, the deputy head of the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel.

Al-Khatib was arrested last month on suspicion of inciting to violence at the height of Israel’s conflict with Gaza, which sparked internal Arab-Jewish unrest.

He is released under restrictive conditions and is barred from accessing the internet, making speeches or giving interviews for 45 days. He is also barred from gatherings of more than 45 people.
