JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Clashes reportedly broke out between Israeli forces and Palestinian residents of the flashpoint neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem on Monday morning, following a wave of detentions.

Ma'an's correspondent said Israeli police, intelligence officers and border guards stormed Wad Hilwa, Al-Bustan and other areas to arrest Palestinians suspected of taking part in clashes on Thursday.

Residents said settlers provoked the violence by attempting to enter the Al-Ein Mosque.

The reporter identified the detainees as Su'ad Abu Rumouz and her brother Jawad from Al-Bustan, Muezzin of the Al-Ein Mosque Adam Simrin, 68, and Fadi Siyam, 28, and his brother Nur, 20. A third Siyam brother, 16-year-old Hamza, was summoned Tuesday morning and will be escorted by his father.

A spokesman for Israel's National Police did not return a call seeking comment.
