JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least three Jerusalemites, including teens, while exiting the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound following Friday prayers.

Local sources told Ma'an that Israeli forces stationed at the entrance gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque detained three Jerusalemites as they were leaving the compound.

Amjad Abu Assab, head of Jerusalem Committee for Families of Prisoners, said that Israeli forces detained minors (a minor is a person under the age of full legal responsibility) Muhammad Wahbeh and Mahdi Abu Assab.

The third detainee was identified as youth Muhib al-Qutub.

Reasons for their detention are not yet known.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are 5,900 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons, of whom 291 are children, and 49 of them are under the age of 16.
