An Israeli Occupation court in Jerusalem ended the 10-month house arrest imposed on Palestinian journalist Lama Ghosheh Tuesday and ordered her to do nine months of public service.

She was also handed six months suspended sentence for three years, in addition to a 4,500-shekel fine (approximately  USD 1,200).

Ghosheh's lawyer Nasser Odeh said he will appeal the verdict.

Ghosheh was arrested on allegations of incitement against the Israeli Occupation through her writings.

Her phone and personal computer were also confiscated.

Following her release from prison, she was placed in September of last year under house arrest and banned from using social media.
