Yesterday Israeli forces arrested four worshippers, including a girl, as they stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque's Al-Rahma gate, in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

Local sources informed the Palestinian Information Centre (PIC) that the Israeli officers had raided the mosque's Bab Al-Rahma building "without removing their shoes."

The sources pointed out that the captives included a girl named Aya Abu Nab, along with her brother Hamza and another young man named Mohammad Sharifa, from the Bab Al-Hitta area in Jerusalem's occupied Old City. They added that the occupation officers had also assaulted other Palestinian citizens in the vicinity of the holy mosque.
