On Friday morning, the Israeli intelligence services released YaccoubDabagh, a 17-year-old from the Old City of Jerusalem, and informed him that he will be receiving an order banning him from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque for six months. It is noteworthy that police forces and intelligence stormed his house twice last week and handed him a summon for interrogation.
