JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces assaulted a former Palestinian prisoner, Mahmoud Taha, from the Shufat refugee camp in occupied East Jerusalem, on Monday.

Ma'an sources reported that the Israeli intelligence summoned former prisoner, Mahmoud Taha, for interrogation to the Israeli police station in West Jerusalem.

Upon Taha's arrival, Israeli forces detained and repeatedly beat him for unknown reasons.

Meanwhile, local sources confirmed that Israeli forces stormed the Issawiya neighborhood in East Jerusalem and conducted searches of Palestinian youths and vehicles passing by.

Following the search, Israeli forces broke into the family home of Muhammad Ibrahim Darwish.

Darwish was detained following the raid.

Additionally, about 33 Israeli settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque through the Moroccan Gate, in the Old City of East Jerusalem.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque. The third holiest site in Islam, it is also venerated as Judaism's most holy place, as it sits where Jews believe the First and Second Temples once stood.

While Jewish visitation is permitted to the compound, non-Muslim worship at Al-Aqsa is prohibited according to an agreement signed between Israel and the Jordanian government after Israel's illegal occupation of East Jerusalem in 1967.
