IMEMC & Agencies: Sunday, Israeli police officers attacked and kidnapped an elderly Palestinian man in the courtyards of the al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied East Jerusalem, the WAFA News Agency said.


The elderly man was moved to an Israeli detention and interrogation facility in the occupied city.
Eyewitnesses told WAFA that a group of settlers, heavily accompanied by Israeli soldiers, stormed the yards of the Mosque from the al-Magharba Gate area, where they harassed Palestinian worshipers who started chanting and peacefully protesting the attack.

The police then kidnapped a 60-year-old worshiper, alleging that the man “tried to stop the settlers” as they “attempted to perform religious rituals”.

The Israeli attack is part on ongoing violations, by Israeli soldiers and settlers, against the Palestinians in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in occupied Jerusalem, as well as the rest of occupied Palestine.
