Israel Detaines 10 Paletsinian in Jerusalem Area

JERUSALEM, September 27, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli police late Saturday and early Sunday detained ten Palestinians from the Jerusalem area, according to WAFA correspondent.

Israeli police early Sunday morning detained Zeyyad al-Qaq, Ali Abu dyyab, Ala’a Abu Tayeh, Ramzi, Ahmad and Ibrahim Dandees. They were all taken to an interrogation and detention center in the city of Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Israeli police late Saturday night detained four Palestinians, including a minor, in the village Sour Bahir to the south of Jerusalem, for their alleged involvement in the killing of an Israeli settler almost two weeks ago.

Israeli police issued a statement detailing the names of the detainees, excluding the minor’s identity, who were arrested late Saturday. They were identified as Mohammed Abu Kaf, 19, Walid al-Atrash, 19, and Abd Mahmoud Doyat.

To be noted, around 170 Palestinians in Jerusalem have been detained by Israel during the past 12 days, for taking part in rallies condemning the Israeli latest attack on al-Aqsa mosque compound.

In mid September, Israeli Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein approved the use of sniper fire against Palestinian “stone-throwers” who protest against Israel’s growing dominance over al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem.

This came a day after Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared what he described as a “war” on rock-throwing protesting Palestinians in Jerusalem, following three days of clashes in and around al-Aqsa mosque as police allowed the entry of Jews into the holy site.

Israel have been enforcing a unilateral temporal division on the mosque; banning Palestinians from entering the compound during specific hours, while settlers are provided with a police escort into the Islamic holy site.
