October 26, 2019

 

On Saturday, the Israeli occupation forces arrested two youths during the suppression of a solidarity stand in Salah Al-Din Street in Jerusalem on Saturday.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center said that the Israeli occupation forces arrested two youths after they were severely beaten, dragged them on the ground and took them to Salah Al-Din Street police station.

The center added that the Israeli occupation forces fired sound grenades and assaulted and beat the participants in the peaceful sit-in and chased them from one place to another in Salah Al-Din Street to prevent them from gathering and cheering for the prisoners.

The forces confiscated photos of Hiba Labadi that was raised in Salah Al-Din Street, and chased a Jerusalemite woman to confiscate the Palestinian keffiyeh from her.

The forces also pursued the press crews, assaulted them, and obstructed their work.

Five prisoners are continuing their open hunger strike against their administrative detention.
