Israeli forces raid al-Issawiya for 5th day in a row

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Clashes broke out in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya on Thursday for the 5th day in a row, locals said.

Mohammad Abu al-Homs, a monitoring committee official, told Ma'an that a large number of Israeli forces raided al-Issawiya after being deployed for hours at the entrance to the neighborhood.

Israeli forces raided house, shops and physically assaulted several people, leading al-Homs to say that the neighborhood had turned into a "training ground" for Israel.

Over 25 people from the neighborhood have been detained by Israeli forces over the past five days, he added.
