JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli police banned, on Thursday evening, a Palestinian fireman, from the Islamic Endowment Department, from entering the al-Rahma Gate (Gate of Mercy) area inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Head of the public relations office at the Islamic Endowment Department, Firas al-Dibs, said that Israeli police forces detained Imad Abdeen while at Hatta Gate adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Abdeen was interrogated for several hours before being released on the condition of being banned from entering the al-Rahma Gate area, as Israeli police claim Abdeen was with Al-Aqsa guards who opened the gate.

The al-Rahma Gate is a big building that lays to the east of the Al-Aqsa, the Israeli authorities sealed the building in 2003 as it was the headquarters of the Islamic Heritage Committee; Israel had said at the time that the building was being used for political activities. In 2017, an Israeli court ordered that the building be closed until a further notice.
