Interior Minister Silvan Shalom on Monday signed an order prohibiting the deputy chief of the Islamic Movement's Northern Branch from leaving the country.

Kemal Hatib is the deputy of the group's leader, Sheikh Raed Saleh, who many Israeli leaders say is a key player behind the incitement they blame for the recent wave of terror.

Shalom said that the move was one of many he was taking against "those who endanger the security of Israel."
