Israel Arrests 22 Palestinians in East Beit Ul-Muqaddas

Israeli police said on Tuesday they arrested 22 Palestinians, including 13 minors, in east Beit ul-Muqaddas overnight, as three months of protests showed no let-up.
It brought to 700 the number of arrests in east Beit ul-Muqaddas since July, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement, including 50 this month alone; AFP wrote.
Fierce clashes broke out across the West Bank, including east Beit ul-Muqaddas, in July, following the brutal murder of a Palestinian teenager in an apparent revenge attack by Jewish extremists.
The violence continued throughout the summer as Palestinians protested against a bloody Israeli military operation against militants in the Gaza Strip.
On September 7, 16-year-old Palestinian Mohammed Sinokrot died from injuries sustained when he was shot by Israeli border police in east Beit ul-Muqaddas.
Police said he was shot in the leg with a foam pellet while rioting, but his family said he was shot in the head on his way to the mosque.
Israel occupied east Beit ul-Muqaddas in 1967 and later annexed it, in a move never recognized by the international community.
