JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police on Wednesday arrested seven people in an East Jerusalem neighborhood, a monitoring committee member said.
Muhammad Abu al-Homs told Ma'an that Israeli police raided al-Isawiya, raided several houses, and clashed with locals.
The police used pepper spray against locals before clashes started, Abu al-Homs said.
He identified three of the seven people arrested as Muhammad Abdullah al-Homs, Ahmad Abdullah al-Hams, and the latter's 18-year-old daughter Hanin.
An Israeli police spokesman was unable to be reached for comment.
