Occupation forces close Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, attack families, arrest seven

JERUSALEM, Sunday, 13, 2022 (WAFA) - The Israeli occupation forces continued this evening their attacks on the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, east of occupied Jerusalem, closing its western entrance with iron mounds.

The occupation forces also chased out the solidarity activists present in the vicinity of the Salem family's house, threatened with imminent expulsion, and evacuated its surroundings for settlers and extremist Knesset member Itamar Ben Gvir, assaulting the families and solidarity activists with rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas and sound bombs, which led to the injury of dozens, and the arrest of seven people.

The number of people detained in the neighborhood since last night has reached thirteen.

The neighborhood residents reportedly performed the Maghrib (sunset) prayers in the neighborhood after calls to remain alert to respond to the attacks of settlers, who tried to obstruct the performance of the prayer by standing in front of the worshipers and playing loud music.
