December 31, 2014

The Israeli forces arrested on Wednesday afternoon a Turkish Muslim young man while he was in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Witnesses explained that the Israeli forces stationed at Al-Aqsa stopped the Turkish man while walking inside the courtyards and asked him for his passport in a provocative way; note that he doesn’t speak Arabic, English or Hebrew. He didn’t understand the forces’ request who responded by severely and brutally beating him. He was then arrested and was taken to Al-Silsileh Gate police center. On the other hand, the Israeli forces raided on Wednesday five houses owned by Eweisat family and searched them under the pretext of looking for Wasim Eweisat who was deported from the city of Jerusalem by a military order. Eweisat family explained that the Israeli forces raided the houses and searched them in a disrupting way and also damaged some of the contents of the houses.
