JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police forces detained a Palestinian youth, on Saturday, in Jerusalem City in the central occupied West Bank for wearing a shirt of the Palestinian flag.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces prevented a Palestinian youth, identified as being from Palestinian lands occupied by Israel in 1948, from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque reportedly for wearing a shirt of the Palestinian flag.

Israeli police forces stopped, searched and detained the youth from inside the Old City of Jerusalem and transferred him to an Israeli police station in the Salah al-Din Street.

Witnesses added that the youth was pushed and assaulted as he was taken to the police station.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center posted a video and pictures of the incident on the center's Facebook page.
