OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Clashes between local Palestinian youth and IOF soldiers erupted again on Thursday evening in the Silwan suburb to the south of the Aqsa Mosque in the holy city.

Jawad Seyam, head of the information center of Wadi Helwa, said that the clashes resulted in the injury of a Palestinian woman and that the IOF soldiers arrested two Palestinian youth.

Eyewitnesses said that Nahlah Gaith, from Ra’s al-Amoud neighborhood in Silwan received injuries all over her body as a result of being assaulted by the IOF soldiers when she tried to stop them from arresting her son.

The witnesses further said that the soldier beat the mother, her son 17-year-old Abdullah Gaith and 19-year-old Muhammad Maher before arresting the two young men.

The suburb has become a hotspot for friction because of  increasing attacks by the Jewish settlers and the occupation soldiers on the local residents as well as occupation plans to demolish 110 Palestinian homes in the suburb to serve the occupation scheme of ethnically cleansing and Judaizing the holy city.

Seyam also said that the IOF soldiers threatened Naim Ruwaidin the owner of the house on which a protest tent was setup giving him till Sunday to tear down the tent.
