Last Sunday, the occupation authorities isolated two young men from the Al-Aqsa Mosque for two weeks.

Lawyer Khaled Zabarqa, said the police released Ibrahim Khalil (from the 1948 lands) and Mus’ab Dweik (from Jerusalem) on condition of being expelled from Al-Aqsa for two weeks and a third-party bail.

Zabarqa added that the Israeli police arrested the two youths from the courtyards of Al-Aqsa, and were charged with "being in Al-Aqsa and pursuing the settlers during the storming of Al-Aqsa."

Wadi Hilweh Information Center learned that the Israeli occupation forces arrested four young men from Al-Aqsa on Sunday morning. They surrounded the worshipers and spread in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa for several hours to secure the settlers' while storming into Al-Aqsa Mosque through Dung Gate.

On the other hand, the Israeli occupation police arrested Mohammed Abu Shousheh, and extended his arrest until Monday. The police also extended the arrest of Thaer Assaileh from the Old City of Jerusalem until the end of May. A secret hearing was conducted for him where his lawyer and his family were prevented from attending.

The judge decided to release Omar Zghayyar with a bail of NIS 750, "on the pretext of violating the decision that bans him from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque," note that Zghayyar is isolated from Al-Aqsa for 6 months.
