Al-Quds, MINA – Israeli Occupation Authority Force on Sunday morning, detained the Chairman of Awqaf Council, Sheikh Abdul-Azim Salhab and Deputy Director of Awqaf, Sheikh Najeh Bkerat from their homes in occupied Al-Quds (Jerusalem)
Israeli forces took them to an open location, Palestinian News Agency Al-Ray reported.
Israeli occupation forces continue to carry out arrest operations against Palestinians in Al-Quds, mainly officers of the Islamic Waqf Council, which is responsible for all Muslim property in the city.
It was done because of Israel’s failed efforts to keep Bab Al-Rahmah inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex so that it remained closed and could not be accessed by Palestinian Muslim worshipers.
Earlier, an Al-Aqsa Mosque guard, Samer Qabbani was detained on Saturday and taken to the Israeli police station. He was arrested for his alleged role in reopening Bab Al-Rahmah for a place of worship after Israeli forces closed it again today.
Israeli forces detained more than 60 Palestinians in recent days because of their alleged involvement in reopening the Bab Al-Rahmah building for worship, the first time in 16 years after the closure of the Israeli military under the pretext of being weak.
As thousands of Palestinians held Friday prayers at the building vowing to keep opening at all times to pray despite objections and threats from the Israeli occupation. (T/Sj/P2)
