In pictures: The Israeli forces arrest six Jerusalemites and suppress a sit-in against the crime in Jenin
The Israeli forces arrested six Jerusalemites on Saturday while suppressing a sit-in at Damascus Gate to condemn the Martyrdom of three Palestinians in Jenin. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that the Special Forces arrested Naser Qos, head of Prisoner’s Club in Jerusalem, and Ala’ Haddad, member of the Jerusalemites detainees and prisoners families committee, and Ahmad Al-Ghoul, director of Fateh Youth Movement in Jerusalem, activist Ahmad Hadeeb, Mouamar Rabyeh and Odai Sub Laban. The forces fired sound grenades and rubber bullets in the courtyard of Damascus Gate to suppress the sit-in which was called for by Fateh Youth Movement and Jerusalemite Youth Movement. They also assaulted the residents who were passing by in the street and the Special Forces blocked Damascus Gate and prevented the young men from entering the gate to reach their work and residence. The clashes lasted for more than two hours as Jerusalemites insisted on staying and condemning the crime in Jenin despite being assaulted by the Israeli forces and severely beat and harassed by the Calvary units. Jerusalemites performed the Evening Prayer in the courtyard of Damascus Gate and then headed towards Sultan Suleiman Street onto Herod’s Gate where they were also harassed and suppressed by the forces. The sit-in was marked by the participation of all Palestinian parties.
