The Israeli police on Saturday detained and interrogated several members of delegations who participated in a conference on Occupied Jerusalem held by the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah a few days ago.
A spokesman for the 9th International Conference on the Holy City of Jerusalem told Quds Press that Israeli police officers detained and questioned several guests who attended the conference for long hours as they were waiting for their flights at al-Lod (Ben Gurion) Airport near Tel Aviv.
The spokesman added that police officers deliberately humiliated and maltreated them at the airport.
He affirmed that the guests were interrogated about their participation in the conference, which was held by the PA ministry of religious affairs, about the people who organized and spoke at the event.
According to al-Jazeera website, a number of international religious figures and politicians, including a Ghanaian legislator, had been denied entry by Israel after they were set to attend the conference on Jerusalem.
The 9th International Conference on the Holy City of Jerusalem kicked off last Wednesday, but there was a glaring absence of attendees, including a 13-member Indian delegation, a mufti from Sri Lanka, a Bosnian Muslim scholar, and the head of Australia’s Islamic Council.
