OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC) – The Israeli police arrested on Thursday evening the Deputy General Director of Jerusalem Endowments, Sheik Najeh Bakirat, hours after his release.
Local sources reported that the occupation police arrested Sheikh Bakirat from his home in Sur Baher town in Jerusalem after hours of releasing him and his son Malik, who spent 19 years in the occupation prisons.
The Israeli police arrested on Wednesday evening Sheikh Bakirat after re-arresting his son, Malik, in Al-Maskobiyya prison, west of Occupied Jerusalem, who was supposed to be released.
On Thursday afternoon, the Israeli police released Malik and his father Sheikh Bakirat and re-arrested the father later.
The Israeli occupation targets Jerusalemites with arrests, deportation orders and fines with the aim of dissuading them from frequenting the Al-Aqsa Mosque and leaving it an easy prey for Israeli settlers.
The occupation targets the employees and guards of Al-Aqsa by arrests, deportation and harassment to dissuade them from their role in protecting the mosque.
