Israeli authorities Friday issued orders to ban 21 Palestinians from East Jerusalem from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, said the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).
PPS added a total of 21 Palestinians were banned entry into the mosque compound for 15 days and the detention of five others was extended.
This came hours after Israeli troops detained some 120 Palestinians from inside the holy site and injured scores of others as worshippers gathered at the holy esplanade for the first time in two weeks since Israel lifted recent tightened measures imposed at the site.
