May 3, 2020


The occupation authorities carried out a series of arrests on Sunday early morning hours in the village of Issawiya in Jerusalem.

Mohammad Abu Al-Hummos, member of the follow-up committee in Issawiya, explained that the occupation forces and intelligence personnel executed multiple arrests against young men from the village.

Abu Al-Hummos added that the forces arrested Samer Anwar Obaid, Adam Kayed Mahmoud, Mutasem Hamza Obaid, Walid Daoud Alayan, Qusai Alayan, Tamer Ali Mahmoud and Mohammad Al-Masri.

He pointed out that the daily campaigns of arrests and incursions into the village did not stop even during the month of Ramadan, as the forces made repeated incursions into the village around the clock, and after the Evening Prayer when people break their fast, where they deliberately and randomly fire grenades for no reason.

Late Saturday evening, the forces arrested Mus’ab Ghazaleh and Ahmad Julani from the area of Bab Hutta in the Old City of Jerusalem.
