Citizens arrested in J’lem for protesting detention of citizens Published: Wed, 28-November-2018

The Israeli occupation police on Tuesday evening arrested several Palestinian citizens participating in a sit-in staged in the holy city in solidarity with detainees in Israeli jails, including Al-Quds (Jerusalem) mayor Adnan Ghaith.

A reporter for the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) said that police forces assaulted the protesters and arrested some of them.

The police also prevented journalists from covering the sit-in and the events that resulted from their assault on the participants.

The participants were protesting the recent arbitrary arrest of Ghaith and several citizens affiliated with Fatah.
