JERUSALEM, May 26, 2011 (WAFA)-  Israeli forces Thursday stormed Madaa Silwan creative center (Madaa) in Wadi Hilwah, a neighborhood in Silwan, near Al-Aqsa Mosque, while the children were there, according to witnesses.

Witnesses told WAFA that the Israeli soldiers terrorized the children while they were looking for the head of the Center, Jawad Ssyam.

They interrogated Ssyam’s wife who was at the center, and handed her a summon for her husband to be interrogated in the interrogation center in Jerusalem. They also raided Ssyam’s house looking for him, witnesses added.

Madaa Silwan creative center was established in 2007 by the Palestinian residents of Wadi Hilwah neighborhood in Silwan. Its  mission is to build a strong, knowledgeable and involved Arab community in Silwan, and to provide educational and recreational activities and courses mainly for children and teenagers.
