36 Palestinians detained in Jerusalem, as 2-week total tops 200

July 17, 2014 2:04 P.M. (Updated: July 17, 2014 4:55 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 36 Palestinians across East Jerusalem early Thursday morning, as the total number arrested in the city over the last two weeks hit 201.

Israeli raids on Thursday occurred in the neighborhoods of Umm Tuba, Silwan, and Issawiya, while Israeli forces said they detained three men in the Old City as well because they had allegedly assaulted a Jewish man.

Locals in Umm Tuba and Silwan told Ma'an that among the detainees were Muhammad Jamal Ibrahim Abu Teir, Ayman Khalid Fayiz Abu Teir, Muhammad Nimir Abu Teir, Muhammad Khalid Ashaq Abu Teir, Diyaa Munir Mousa Abu Teir, Bilal Gheith, Abed Abu Sbeih, Khalid al-Qunbur and Salih Abu Nab.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Ma'an that a total of 36 Palestinians were detained overnight, and that they were detained in "overnight operations against Palestinians who threw petrol bombs and stones at officers."

Furthermore, Israeli police detained two young men in Issawiya, according to a statement released by the police.

The statement said that 201 East Jerusalemites have been detained in the last two weeks, 45 of whom have been indicted. The rest are being held without trial in a policy known as administrative detention.

Hundreds of Palestinians -- both in the West Bank as well as in East Jerusalem -- have been arrested in the last month since the kidnapping of three Jewish teenagers from a settlement last month, as Israeli forces intensified arrest campaigns across the region.
