Israeli occupation authorities, on Sunday night,  banned seven Palestinian women from accessing Al-Aqsa Mosque for two weeks.

An Israeli court held a trial for a number of them, on Monday.

Israeli forces detained six Palestinian women and a girl as they were leaving the  mosque via the gates of Hitta , Asbat, and Annather.

The seven women were identified, by Al Ray, as   Dina Tarwa, Zainab Tarwa, Ibtasam Tawil, Rania Ghazzawi, Jihad Al-Razzim, Suad Obaidiah, and Safa Imam.

Lawyer Khaled Zbarqa explained that Israeli forces detained the women under the pretext of sitting in the eastern part of Al-Aqsa, near Arrahma Gate.
