Days Of Palestine – Jerusalem
The Israeli occupation police on Sunday kidnaped two Palestinian young men after raiding their homes in Bab Huta neighborhood in the Old City of Jerusalem.
According to local sources, police forces broke into and ransacked two homes in the neighborhood before rounding up two young men identified as Mustafa Abu Ghazalah and Mohamed Sharifa.
Meanwhile, Israeli police officers in the evening stormed the cemetery of Issawiya district and checked the IDs of Palestinian citizens working there.
It has been long months of aggressive practices by Israeli police in different Palestinian neighborhoods of east Jerusalem, especially in Issawiya. Excessive police brutality and indiscriminate daily raids with no justification have left the Jerusalemite residents exhausted – and there is no end in sight.
Israeli forces, for long months, have been detaining hundreds of residents, including minors, issuing traffic tickets for spurious infractions, serving house demolition orders, and committing acts of violence against the Jerusalemite natives.
