JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces severely assaulted and detained a Palestinian man, late Thursday, while near one of the Al-Aqsa Mosque gates in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem in the central West Bank.

The Jerusalemite, who identified himself as Nitham Abu Ramouz, 37, told Ma'an that Israeli forces detained him as he attempted to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound via the Lions Gate.

Abu Ramouz said that Israeli forces took him to an Israeli police station near the Lions Gate in the city and immediately assaulted and beating him on the head, face and back while handcuffed before throwing him into a cell.

Abu Ramouz mentioned that despite his injuries and bleeding, Israeli forces transferred him to the al-Qishla detention center for further interrogation. However, due to the severity of his injuries, he was transferred to the Hadassah Medical Center for treatment.

Abu Ramouz said that he was handcuffed during the entire detention, which lasted until late evening, and was then released on condition of returning for further interrogation the next day.

Reasons for his detention remained unknown.
