Palestinian activist withdraws appeal of order banning him from Jerusalem
The IDF Home Front commander banned Adnan Jith from Jerusalem for four months, saying he threatens public order.
A Palestinian activist says he has withdrawn his court challenge of a military order banning him from his native Jerusalem for four months.
Adnan Jith said on Wednesday he didn't believe Israel's Supreme Court would rule in his favor against the military.
The Israel Defense Forces Home Front commander invoked a rare, British Mandate-era statute to ban Jith from Jerusalem, saying he threatens the public order. His expulsion was postponed while he appealed. He must now leave Jerusalem by Jan. 12 .
Jith, who has led protests against settlers in his East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, said he hasn't decided if he'll obey the order.
Israel captured East Jerusalem in the Six-Day War in 1967 and considers it part of its capital. The Palestinians claim it as the capital of a future state.
