OC Home Front Command Maj.-Gen. Yair Golan issued an order on Monday banning Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, from entering Jerusalem over the next three weeks. Salah will have the opportunity to appeal to the decision. If the ruling remains in place, the IDF said that Golan planned to extend it by an additional six months. Golan issued the order after reviewing intelligence information that Salah was a threat to public safety and in accordance with the recommendations of relevant security agencies.
