Israeli officers attack, detain Palestinian woman at Aqsa gate

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli police officers detained a Palestinian woman from Jerusalem on Monday afternoon when she attempted to enter the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, witnesses said.

Eyewitnesses told Ma’an that after Israeli officers denied Ayda Saydawi entry to the al-Aqsa compound, an officer attacked her brutally “and tore her clothes.”

Heated arguments broke out between Israeli officers and Palestinian residents before Saydawi was taken to a police station.

Saydawi has been detained several times and has been banned from entering the al-Aqsa mosque for months.
