Occupied Palestine (QNN)- A report issued by the Palestinian Prisoners’ Centre for Studies (PCBS) revealed that the occupation state had arrested 3750 Palestinians from occupied Jerusalem since Trump’s administration announced that Jerusalem is the capital of ‘Israel’ nearly two years ago.
According to the report, 1070 children have been arrested. 171 women and girls, including minors, wounded women, mothers, and women who have been staging a sit-in in Al-Aqsa Mosque, have been also arrested.
Riyad Al-Ashqar, spokesman and researcher for the PCBs, said that the Occupation authorities had increased their aggression against the Jerusalemites since Trump’s announcement, to force them to accept the decision, and not to allow them to catch their breath and prepare for more confrontation.
The arrests were carried out in all the villages, towns, and districts of Jerusalem. Yet, Issawiya was primarily targeted by this campaign, as 1400 locals were arrested, followed by Shuafat, 498 arrests, then Silwan, 504, Old City, 429, and Al-Aqsa Mosque, 344 while the rest of the arrestees were from different Palestinian villages and towns.
According to the report, the Israelis arrested 1070 children and put them under house arrest. 74 children under the age of 12 were also arrested.
