Al-Hayat al-Jadida, al-Ayyam and al-Quds said police broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque last night in pursuit of a Palestinian youth who allegedly attacked police officers at one of the gates to the Mosque compound. They said the alleged attacker was apprehended.
They also highlighted Israeli military incursions, arrests, and demolition or orders of demolition in several areas of the occupied territories.
Al-Quds said in its main front-page story, quoting sources telling the newspaper, that following the broadcast by Hamas of a video of one of its Israeli captives, Israel has asked Egypt to find out more about its captives held by Hamas in Gaza.
The daily also reported on the wide condemnation of an Israeli plan to register property in occupied Jerusalem, mainly in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the old city, in the name of Jewish settlers.
It also said in another report that rights organizations have petitioned the Israeli High Court against government restrictions on the entry and stay of foreigners in the West Bank, mainly employed by universities.
Al-Hayat al-Jadida said Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh stressed in a meeting with members of the US Congress in his office on removing the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) from its terrorist list and to consider it a partner in peace.
It said Israel repression forces broke into section 2 in Askalan prison in the south of Israel where Palestinian freedom fighters are held, and that the health of the cancer-stricken prisoner, Nasser Abu Hmeid, is quickly deteriorating.
Al-Ayyam said the Israeli Early Release committee has rejected an appeal for the early release of the prisoner Ahmad Manasra, 20, due to his deteriorating mental health condition.
