Heavy Israeli military clampdown in Jerusalem 27Feb12 February 27, 2012

IMEMC  -  26 February 2012

Many Jerusalem Streets and its surrounding towns witnessed heavy Israeli military procedures early Sunday morning. Israeli soldiers and their machines were spread all over the streets, towns and neighborhoods.

The Israeli army spread out its special units and police in the Old City of Jerusalem, especially around Al-Aqsa Mosque while the police units, based on the main gates of the Mosque, reserved the ID’s of the young men before they entered to pray.

Other Israeli Police Forces were scattered in almost all of the City’s streets and entrances of the neighboring towns. Including the entrances of the towns of Silwan, Tur, Thawri, Anata, Ram, Shuafat and other neighborhoods. The army police placed many checkpoints, stopped cars and gave out tickets.

One of the police spokesmen mentioned that these measures were ‘in anticipation of the renewed fightings with the citizens in different parts of Jerusalem.’
