OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– An Israeli court decided on Wednesday to deport Jerusalemite MP Mohammed Abu Tir from his native hometown of occupied Jerusalem to the West Bank.

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has been detaining the lawmaker for five months under the claim of “illegal presence” in Jerusalem.

The Israeli interior minister had ordered the deportation of Jerusalemite MPs Abu Tir, Mohammed Totah, Ahmed Attoun, and former minister of Jerusalem affairs Khaled Abu Arafa out of Jerusalem at the pretext of their “non-allegiance to Israel”.

The Israeli occupation forces apprehended Abu Tir after conclusion of the period granted by the minister for their banishment, prompting his other comrades to take refuge in the Red Cross headquarters in Jerusalem to highlight their issue. They pitched a sit-in tent since then.

MP Attoun said that the trial of Abu Tir was of political nature and was not based on any legal foundation, charging that the Israeli judiciary was under the control of the Israeli intelligence.
