According to Palestinian sources, Israeli security forces broke into Ebn-Qudamah mosque in Wadi el Joz, a Jerusalem neighborhood, tampered with its content and arrested two Palestinian youths.

Witnesses told WAFA that “ Israeli troops, including intelligence, soldiers, and police broke into the mosque, smashed its front door, seized the loudspeakers, closed the mosque and hung on the door a closure order issued by the Israeli Minister of Internal Security, Yitzhak Aharonovitch, under the pretext of ‘the mosque belongs to Hamas’.
