September 11, 2023

On Monday, the Israeli occupation forces arrested 4 of the students of the "Al-Aqsa" school, in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Siraj Abu Arafeh, a lawyer for the Wadi Hilweh Information Center- Jerusalem, explained that the forces arrested the following students: Mouath Taha, Karam Al-Razem, Zain Ghosheh, and Mohammad Qos.

Eyewitnesses explained that the Israeli forces stationed at Hutta Gate - one of the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque - stopped the students during their break during school hours, and asked them some questions in the field on purpose to provoke them, and also assaulted them by pushing them, and then they arrested them.

Lawyer Abu Arafeh explained that the detainees were transferred to the Al-Qishla Detention Center in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Zain Al-Majid - the father of one of the students of Al-Aqsa School - was also arrested.

On the other hand, the forces summoned the boy Mahmoud Khweis and Mohammad Khalil from the town of Al-Tur, for investigation at the Salah El-Din Street Police station.

The Israeli occupation authorities handed over the Jerusalemite Sbeih Abu Sbeih an order to expel him from Al-Aqsa Mosque for a week, with the possibility of renewal.
