JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained seven Palestinians in East Jerusalem overnight Wednesday and early Thursday, a local community center said.

Israeli forces stormed Silwan early Thursday and detained Suleiman Khalid al-Awar, 16, his brother Haron, 15, and Muntasir Omar al-Awar, 16, according to the Wadi Hilweh information center.

Muhammad Tahir Abu Nab, 23, was detained from his Silwan home at 2 a.m. after Israeli forces kicked down his front door. Relatives say Israeli forces physically assaulted his brother Ahmad and Nasser.

On Wednesday, Israeli forces detained Majdi Afanah, 25, and Hasan Sabri Wahish, 28, during clashes in Abu Dis, while Suleiman Abdul-Latif was arrested in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, where he works in maintenance.
