JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained five Palestinians and injured five more in subsequent clashes at the southwestern entrance to al-Issawiya neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem on Friday.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces stopped a car at the neighborhood entrance and asked for one of the passengers, the wife of a Palestinian prisoner, Anwar Jamjoum.

The car was then ordered to drive to a nearby Israeli military base.

After Nahla Mheisen, a passenger in the car, and her son questioned the reasons for their detention they were assaulted by Israeli forces, witnesses said.

Mheisin was reported to have briefly lost consciousness.

All five passengers were detained, and the car was seized.

Clashes then broke out in the area, and five Palestinians were injured by shrapnel from stun grenades as well as rubber-coated steel bullets.

Israeli forces regularly block entrances to al-Issawiya, and clashes between locals and Israeli troops frequently break out.
