An Israeli court Thursday charged a Islamic preacher with incitement to terrorism in connection with deadly unrest at a Jerusalem holy site last month, the justice ministry said.It said that 1948 Palestinian Raed Salah was charged in Haifa magistrates' court on a total of six counts, also including support for a banned organisation.His group, the radical northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, was outlawed in 2015 for incitement linked to the holy site, the Haram al-Sharif mosque compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.The justice ministry quoted the charge sheet as saying Salah's statements were made at the Umm al-Fahm funeral of the assailants and in two sermons he delivered at Friday Muslim prayers in the town, in northern Israel.
