Days of Palestine, West Bank -Israel occupation forces have kidnapped 215 Palestinian women, including minors, since start of Jerusalem Intifada in October last year.

According to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Centre for Studies (PPCS), the kidnapped women included the mothers, wives and daughters of prisoners, as well as women who are over 60 years old.

PPCS Spokesman Riyad al-Ashqar said that there had been a “notable increase” in the targeting of Palestinian women, noting that there is at least one kidnapping every day.

Some of the women, who were kidnapped, were released after a short period, he explained, while others were investigated first or held under administrative detention or in prison hospitals because they were injured during the kidnapping.

There are currently 68 Palestinian women currently in Israeli jails, including 11 wounded and 18 minors. The youngest is 14-year-old Istabraq Nour, who was wounded as she was shot when kidnapped.

Video of the Week New Clashes Erupt Between Israeli Security Forces, Muslim Worshippers

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police




The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives. http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.802141
