JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli police stormed a summer camp for children in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied east Jerusalem on Monday and interrogated campers, a Fatah official said.

Munir Al-Jaghoub, spokesman for Fatah recruitment, says the camp is run by the Sheikh Jarrah Women’s Forum. About 50 children aged 12-17 joined the camp, called “Sheikh Jarrah will remain steadfast,” he added.

Also Monday, an Israeli court fined a family in the Bustan area of the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan more than $10,000 for building a house without a permit, the official Palestinian news agency said.

Wafa said the court also gave the owner, Widad Tawil, a mother of eight, until October to obtain a building permit from the Israeli municipality; otherwise, the house will be demolished.
