OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) banished a Jerusalemite from Silwan and arrested a number of others in a sweep of arrests in occupied Jerusalem on the second day of Ramadan.

Local sources said that Ammar Zaitun, who was detained for the past two months, was ordered by an Israeli court to remain under house arrest in Enata away from his hometown in Silwan after he was charged with resisting settlers and soldiers.

Meanwhile, Israeli border policemen beat up and insulted an old man and his family in Silwan during a search in his home.

Eyewitnesses in Aisawiye said Israeli policemen broke into a number of homes to arrest youths accused with throwing stones at settlers and soldiers, adding that three were arrested in the process.
