RAMALLAH, The Israeli occupation forces closed Wednesday Bab al-Amud, one of the most famous gates of old city of Al-Quds "Jerusalem", and assaulted Palestinian citizens from Al-Quds, especially schoolchildren, the Palestinian Prisoners' Club said in a statement.
The Israeli occupation forces arrested eight students, all of them from the towns of Silwan, south of al-Aqsa Mosque and Jabal al-Mukaber, southeast of occupied Jerusalem, and beat one of them in the vicinity of Bab al-Amud in occupied Al-Qud, the statement said.
It added that the IOF transformed Bab al-Amud into a detention center in the holy city, the statement added.
The Israeli occupation forces claimed that the closure of Bab al-Amud was due to a suspicious body found in the area.
