Jerusalem24 – Today, Thursday, the Israeli police detained dozens of women in the Bab al-Sahira (Herod’s Gate) area in Jerusalem, under the pretext of entering Jerusalem “without permits.”
The women explained that the Israeli authorities took their identities after arresting them when they tried to enter the Old City through Bab Al-Sahira, and detained them for hours under the pretext of “carrying West Bank ID cards,” and then prevented them from entering and reaching Al-Aqsa.
The Israeli police pushed some of the women, then took them in private vehicles to the checkpoints at the entrances to Jerusalem.
Palestinians living in the West Bank are not allowed entry into the city of Jerusalem without special permits. Jerusalem was taken by Israel following the Six-Day War in 1967, it later annexed the city in 1980 amid international condemnation.
