On Friday evening, the occupation forces arrested a boy from the area of Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, and extended the arrest of 4 boys that were arrested from Al-Aqsa courtyards.

The lawyer of the Wadi Hilweh Information Center - Jerusalem, Firas Al-Jabrini, stated that the police arrested Nour Youssef Ishtay, from the area of Damascus Gate, and referred him to investigation.

Eyewitnesses reported that dozens of settlers threw stones and empty bottles at Jerusalemites who were in the Damascus Gate area. Immediately, the police came and beat them with batons and pushed the young men and women.

On the other hand, the police extended the arrest of the boys, Muntaser Sabteh, Faris Ahmed Obaid, Majd Wadih Obaid, and Mohamed Alaa Obaid, until Saturday.

The police arrested the boys from Al-Aqsa courtyards, under the pretext of "throwing stones and participating in a march."
