Several undercover Israeli soldiers attacked, on Wednesday, an elderly Palestinian man from Beit Surik town, near occupied East Jerusalem. Eyewitnesses said the undercover soldiers attacked Mustafa Afalqa, causing many cuts and bruises to his head and face, and other parts of his body.

The Palestinian was assaulted near the home of Nimir Mahmoud al-Jamal, 37, who was killed on September 26th, after opening fire on a group of Israeli Border Police officers, and armed security guards, killing three and wounding a fourth at the main entrance of Har Hadar illegal Israeli colony.

on Wednesday at dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded the towns of al-‘Isawiyya, Hizma and Silwan, in occupied East Jerusalem, searched homes and abducted two Palestinians.

Also in Jerusalem, Israeli occupation authorities have prohibiting children from playing in the courtyards surrounding Al-Aqsa Mosque.

the Israeli Supreme Court issued an order banning Jerusalemite children from playing in Al-Aqsa courtyards. The order was issued after complaints filed, about a month ago, by settlers who stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque and claimed to have seen children playing football around the schools.

According to the Israeli police, the order is aimed primarily at the areas adjacent to the Islamic schools located in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque. Jewish organizations have demanded that such practices be banned and that those found doing so be prosecuted or at least have their balls confiscated.

Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers abducted, on Wednesday at dawn, six Palestinians, including four in of the southern West Bank governorate of Hebron, summoned one Palestinian for interrogation and confiscated large sums of cash.
