JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained an international activist who raised the Jordanian flag in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem City in the central West Bank, on Friday.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces suppressed a weekly march in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, during which they detained an international activist.

Israeli forces confiscated ID cards of some protesters.

Witnesses added that Israeli forces also pushed protesters who attempted to free the international activist during his detention.

Protesters told Ma’an that Israeli forces continuously suppresses the weekly march in Sheikh Jarrah, confiscates Palestinian flags and ID cards of protesters and threatens them with detention.

Residents of Sheikh Jarrah have been organizing a weekly march on Fridays for more than 10 years protesting Israeli settlement and seizure of lands and properties of the neighborhood.

Israelis have claimed that Sheikh Jarrah was once the site of a 19th century Jewish community. Many families in the neighborhood have been embroiled in legal disputes for decades, as various Israeli settlers have attempted to claim ownership over their homes.
