Hamas member and legislator Muhammad Abu Tir will remain in jail until his trial is finished, Jerusalem Magistrate's Court decided on Sunday.

Tir refused the conditions of his release, which were to post bail of NIS 350,000 and to leave Israel. His lawyer reportedly told the Palestinian media that he is not interested in meeting the conditions.

Abu Tir was imprisoned for refusing to leave Jerusalem after Interior Minister Eli Yishai invalidated his Jerusalem residence permit along with three other Palestinian legislators for their affiliation with terror group Hamas.
