OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped three Palestinian young men from the old city of Jerusalem and took them to police stations.

According to eyewitnesses, the IOF kidnapped Mahmoud Al-Shaloudi, 22, Mohamed Dawoud, 18, and Ammar Al-Maghribi, 33, and took them in chain to police stations in Bab Al-Asbat and Salahuddin areas.

The eyewitnesses said Israeli soldiers stopped Maghribi in Bab Al-Sahera area and checked his ID before engaging in altercations with him, adding that the troops humiliated the young man, tore his sweater and then took him handcuffed to a police station in Salahuddin area.

In a separate incident, the IOF on Sunday evening stormed and ransacked a Mosque in Al-Eizariya town in east occupied Jerusalem.

Local sources reported that the IOF violently searched Al-Murabetin Mosque in the town and detained the worshipers for long hours after they finished their Isha prayers.

They added that the troops gathered the worshipers outside the Mosque, physically searched them and checked their IDs.

In a new incident on Monday morning, the IOF bulldozed a piece of land belonging to Samreen family in Wadi Rababah neighborhood in Silwan.

Residents from Wadi Rababah reported that a large force of Israeli policemen and soldiers encircled the neighborhood from all directions and prevented the angry citizens from reaching the areas to be razed.

The IOF also barred the students from going to their schools and the adults from going to their workplaces.

Consequently, violent clashes broke out between the residents and the IOF, and two young men were taken prisoners.

The IOF attacked everyone in the area, including women and journalists, and unleashed their dogs at them.

A source from Samreen family affirmed that the Israeli municipal council had no permission to bulldoze their land.

The Israeli bulldozers also demolished a garage and a room, and flattened an agricultural piece of land belonging to a Palestinian citizen named Abdul-Moun’em Shweiki.
