An Israeli court, on Wednesday, sentenced the imam of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque—the third holiest site in Islam—to house confinement.

An Israeli patrol kidnapped Imam Walid Seyam from his family home, on Tuesday evening, hours before an Israeli court ruled that he be subjected to house arrest until Friday.

On Tuesday, an Israeli intelligence unit stormed Seyam’s home in Jerusalem’s Old City and wreaked havoc on the building, before they dragged the imam to the Qishleh detention center, west of occupied Jerusalem, Days of Palestine reports.
