The Israeli occupation police on Wednesday evening closed all the Aqsa Mosque’s doors for about one hour after arresting two Palestinian young men at the holy site on allegations that they were found in possession of a knife.
According to local sources, police officers subdued and hauled two young men to a detention center after chasing them in the Mosque’s main courtyard.
The police claimed that one of the young men was spotted carrying a knife.
They also shut down the Mosque for about one hour and prevented Muslim worshipers from entering or leaving the holy site.
