JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday arrested a man and a woman from the cotton market in the Old City of Jerusalem, witnesses said.

Director of the Jerusalem office of the Palestinian Prisoners Society said Nassar Qaws and Ayda al-Saidawi, 57, were arrested after al-Saidawi was prevented from entering the al-Aqsa Mosque.

Al-Saidawi had a ban to enter the compound which ended on Tuesday, but when she tried to enter it she was stopped and pushed away, witnesses said.

Qaws and others tried to defend her and a confrontation erupted.

Al-Saidawi and Qaws were arrested and taken to Yaho police station, then to al-Qashla station, witnesses added.
