Israeli police kidnap Sheikh Bakirat, summons two women in al-Quds

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Israeli occupation police on Wednesday morning kidnaped Sheikh Najeh Bakirat, deputy director of the Islamic Awqaf in al-Quds (Jerusalem), and summoned Jerusalemite activists and teachers Khadija Khuwais and Hinadi al-Halawani for interrogation.

According to local sources, police forces transferred Sheikh Bakirat, who is also head of the Aqsa Academy for Science and Heritage, to an unknown place after kidnaping him from the car he was driving in the Bab al-Asbat area, east of the Old City of al-Quds (Jerusalem).

On May 6, Sheikh Bakirat received an Israeli order banning his entry to the Aqsa Mosque for six months, which ended in early November.

Meanwhile, the Israeli police in the morning also summoned activists Khadija Khuwais and Hinadi al-Halawani, who work as teachers at the Aqsa Mosque, for interrogation at the Moskobiya detention center in west al-Quds.

Because of their supportive positions on the Aqsa Mosque, Khuwais and Halawani have been summoned, arrested, interrogated and assaulted by the Israeli police several times before. The police also banned their entry to the Mosque and their travel abroad many times.

They are two of many al-Quds residents women whose medical insurance has been revoked because of their peaceful activities in defense of the Aqsa Mosque.

Since the deadly shooting operation that happened a few days ago in the Old City of al-Quds, the Israeli occupation authority and its police have escalated their provocative and aggressive practices against the native Palestinian population in the holy city.
