JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided an area of Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday, leading to clashes with local residents, witnesses said.

Israeli border police raided Bab Hutta square and fired tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets following clashes with local youths.

Muhammad Tahir Fakhouri, 45, and Muhammad al-Salaymeh, 38, were attacked with pepper spray and clubs, according to eyewitnesses.

Border police also raided several homes and detained Abed Haddad, 15, Ahmad Jabir, 17, Muhammad Bujah, 17, Muhammad Najib, 17, Saed Iseila, 27, Ziad Abu Hadwan, 18, Hamza Milhis, and Ribhi Dweik.

All detainees were later released on Monday, a lawyer said, adding that they had to pay bail of 5,000 shekels ($1,445) and are prohibited from accessing Al-Aqsa Mosque until March 20.
