Maan News Agency | Aug 5, 2012


JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces arrested two men in Jerusalem on Saturday during skirmishes between Israeli soldiers and young Palestinian men, an Israeli police spokeswoman said.

Eyewitnesses told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers “provoked worshipers coming back from Al-Aqsa mosque after finishing the Trawih prayer.”

A minor from Beit Hanina and a man from Ras al-Amoud were arrested, an Israeli police spokeswoman said in a statement.

Five Israelis were lightly injured after young Palestinian threw stones at an Egged bus near the Western wall, the statement added.

There are around 360,882 Palestinians in Jerusalem, or 38 percent of the city’s population.

Israel has occupied East Jerusalem since 1967 and formally annexed the area in 1980 after passing the ‘Jerusalem Law’.
