JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained an international activist who raised the Jordanian flag in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem City in the central West Bank, on Friday.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces suppressed a weekly march in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, during which they detained an international activist.
