JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday briefly detained a Palestinian woman before issuing a ban to prevent her entering the Al-Aqsa mosque compound.
Nujoud Imteer was taken to al-Qashla police station when she tried to enter the compound from the Cotton Merchant's Gate.
She was detained and banned for allegedly "causing riot inside the mosque," locals said.
