Israeli authorities, on Thursday, banned Jerusalem’s Governor, Adnan Gheith, from entry into the West Bank, for six consecutive months.

Gheith 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 Gheith from entering and staying in the West Bank unless granted a permission by Padan himself.

According to WAFA, he ban was ordered under the pretext of participation in “illegal and violent activities”.

In November, Gheith was taken from his house in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, for allegedly being involved in the arrest and investigation of a Palestinian merchant who sold lands to Israeli settlers.
