Israeli forces detain Palestinian woman, child at Aqsa compound

Aug. 11, 2015 2:52 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 11, 2015 2:52 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday detained a Palestinian woman and child at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem, locals said.

Muhammad Murad, 13, was detained for allegedly throwing eggs at Israeli forces, while Siham Odah was accused of biting a member of an Israeli special forces unit.

The arrests took place after a group of women and children from a summer camp were reportedly denied access to the holy site for the second day in a row.

A crowd began to chant slogans at Israeli forces after which scuffles broke out and the detentions were made.

The third holiest site in Islam, the mosque compound is also venerated as Judaism's most holy place as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood.
