Israeli Interior Minister, Aryeh Deri, extended the travel ban issued against the deputy leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, Sheikh Kamal Al-Khatib, Anadolu Agency reported yesterday.

Speaking to Anadolu, Al-Khatib said that he received a notice saying the ban had been extended for another month after his six month ban was due to end soon.

The renewal was issued on “security” grounds.

Al-Khatib said: “This will reinforce our pride in our religion”. He added, “Whatever you [Israeli authorities] do and however many restrictions you place on us, we will stick to the values of our religion,”.

In November last year, the Israeli occupation authorities banned the Islamic Movement in Israel led by Sheikh Raed Salah who was later imprisoned, and closed tens of organizations, including charities and orphanages, over alleged links to the movement.
