JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained five Palestinian teenagers in the Old City of Jerusalem late Tuesday, the Palestinian Prisoners' Society said.

Nasser Qaws, the director of the group's Jerusalem office, told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers raided the neighborhoods of Aqbat al-Khalidyya, the Chain Gate, al-Wadi, and Via Dolorosa and detained five boys between the ages of 14 and 15.

Qaws identified the detainees as Ayman Hashmiya, Taha Hashmiya, Muhammad al-Dadou, Murad Tarhouni, and Rashid al-Rashiq.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an he was not familiar with the incident.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
