Israel court upholds Turkish national's release on bail
Ebru Ozkan to be conditionally released on bail set at 15,000 Israeli shekels

By Esat Firat


JERUSALEM (AA) - An Israeli military court on Wednesday dismissed prosecutors’ objections to the conditional release of detained Turkish national Ebru Ozkan.

Ozkan, 27, appeared at a Wednesday hearing at the Ofer military court in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Prosecutors lodged an objection on Tuesday after the court ruled to release Ozkan on bail set at 15,000 Israeli shekels (roughly $4,125).

She has been forbidden to leave the country and her passport has been confiscated by Israeli police.

Ankara, meanwhile, has registered its objection to Ozkan’s arrest, vowing to take appropriate steps in response.

Ozkan was arrested on June 11 at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport for alleged links to “terrorist groups”.

She is not the first Turkish national to have been recently detained by Israeli authorities.

In January, Osman Hazir, a 46-year-old Turkish citizen, was arrested for snapping a selfie at East Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque while holding a Turkish flag.

And last December, Israel arrested Abdullah Kizilirmak and Mehmet Gargili after they quarreled with Israeli police who had tried to bar them from entering the flashpoint holy site.

The same month, Adem Koc was arrested inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for allegedly “disturbing the peace and taking part in an illegal demonstration”.
