The Israeli occupation police on Thursday afternoon kidnaped seven Palestinian citizens, including two young girls and three children, from the Bab al-Rahma prayer area of the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
According to eyewitnesses, police forces stormed the Bab al-Rahma area and rounded up Aqsa guard Bader al-Rajbi along with three children, two girls and one young man.
The girls were identified as Shifa Abu Ghaliya and Medellin Issa and the young man as Habib Abu Shusha.
The police forces barred other Palestinian citizens from taking pictures as they were carrying out the arrests.
A few days ago, the police kidnaped an Aqsa guard called Amer al-Salfiti before an Israeli court extended his detention for seven days because he took photos of police officers as they were stealing furniture from the Bab al-Rahma prayer area.
