Israeli police detained, on Saturday, a Palestinian woman at Damascus Gate, at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, in Jerusalem, after an alleged attempted stabbing attack, the Palestinian News and Info Agency reported.
Witnesses stated that several police officers at the heavily fortified gate jumped the female worshiper, whose identity was not immediately known, before taking her away in handcuffs.
Police closed Damascus Gate as well as nearby streets and prevented people from entering or leaving the Old City after the incident.
Two videos below show the brutal handling of the woman, however no evidence of an attempted stabbing is noted.
