Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Two young Palestinian men have been banished from Silwan district for a period of one year and one day by the Jerusalem Magistrates Court. The sentencing of Mazen Odeh, 26, who currently suffers injury caused by Israeli settler guards in Silwan, and Moussa Badran, 20, was branded “unfair” by fellow Silwan residents.

The two men were arrested from their homes by Israeli forces. Odeh’s health remains poor, with his movements remain impinged due to the injury.
