Israeli forces detain 50 Palestinians in West Bank and Jerusalem


JERUSALEM, Israeli forces Sunday detained at least 50 Palestinians from several areas in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

PPS said Israeli police arrested about 40 Palestinians in an ongoing campaign in Jerusalem since early morning yesterday, including a top Fatah official identified as Shadi Mtawer.

Some of the detainees from East Jerusalem were arrested at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the city, amid increasing tensions caused by the recent provocative visits by Jewish fanatics to the holy site.
