Three youths and a child were kidnapped during the israeli attack, media sources revealed.
Journalists were also attacked and prevented from covering the events.
Since the start of the holy month of Ramadan, the zionist occupation police were put on high alert at the Bab al-Amud area with police officers deployed in large numbers accompanied by police dogs. 33 Palestinian youths were detained since then.
The attack is seen as part of israeli attempts to impose a new fait accompli on the Jerusalemites and prevent their night presence in the areas around the Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan.
