14-year-old daughter of slain Abu Sbeih kidnapped by IOF from home



OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) at dawn Monday kidnapped the 14-year-old daughter of the slain Palestinian Musbah Abu Sbeih from her family home in northern Occupied Jerusalem.  The IOF kidnapped the child Iman Abu Sbeih, 14, after they stormed her family home in al-Ram town, one day after her father was shot dead by the occupation forces following an anti-occupation shooting he carried out in Occupied Jerusalem. Shortly following her father’s murder, the girl appeared on air while hailing her father’s iron will. She said the family bid the casualty last farewell after he updated them on his intent to turn himself in to the occupation authorities to serve a four-month prison-term. “I am proud of my father,” Iman said in a videotaped speech. “My father and I had a very strong relationship,” she said. “I bade farewell to my father right after dawn prayers. I asked him whether he wants me to visit him while in prison and he responded: ‘Take care of your prayers and studies Iman. I hope that you pass with an honor.” “He asked my sister to take care of her prayers and kissed my brother before he left,” she added. On Sunday afternoon, the Israeli occupation army kidnapped Abu Sbeih’s father and his two brothers and dragged them to the Mascoubiya detention center after they broke into their family homes in Silwan and al-Ram, in Occupied Jerusalem. Overnight, 17 Palestinians were also kidnapped by the IOF from Occupied Jerusalem following Abu Sbeih’s anti-occupation attack. Facebook administration closed Abu Sbeih’s private account following pressure from the Israeli occupation government to quell anti-occupation “incitement.” Israel’s Internal Security Minister, Gilad Erdan, also ordered the police to suppress those involved in or supporting anti-occupation attacks by all means available.

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
