Israeli occupation forces IOF detained dozens of Palestinians in 1948-occupied lands over their participation in protests in support of Al-Aqsa Mosque, media sources revealed on Sunday, April 9, 2023.
Palestinian media sources indicated that IOF detained about 50 Palestinians, including minors between April 5 and April 7.
The sources explained that IOF abducted 17 Palestinians in Umm al-Fahm City, 7 of whom were released later.
Meanwhile, the Israeli troops kidnapped 8 Palestinians in Al-Nasera. Five of them were held under house arrest following their release from Israeli prisons.
In addition, IOF arrested 4 Palestinian youths in Sakhnin, 4 in Bi’ina, five in Kafr Manda, a woman in Haifa, and five others in Baqa al-Gharbiyye.
Palestinians in the 1948-occupied lands took to the street in mass protests to condemn the Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa.
Earlier last week, Israeli troops invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque, attacking worshipers and preventing them from praying. 200 Palestinians were injured as a result.
The Palestinian Ministry of Detainees and Ex-detainees stated that IOF detained 500 Palestinian worshipers in occupied Jerusalem following the attacks on Al-Qibli Prayer Hall last Tuesday.
