JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained seven Palestinians from the Old City of Jerusalem early Saturday, a lawyer and a local official said.

Lawyer Muhammad Mahmoud of the prisoners' support organization Addameer said that Israeli police raided the houses of five Palestinian young men before taking them into custody.

The youths were identified as Akram al-Shurafa, Faris Abu Ghannam, Amir Bazlamit, Muhammad al-Jubah, and Ahmad Salah.

Meanwhile, Israeli police detained Ehab Zughayyar and Nafith al-Jubah during a raid in the Old City of Jerusalem, a local committee for prisoners' families said.

An Israeli police spokesman did not answer calls seeking comment.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967 and formally annexed the area in 1980 in a move never recognized by the international community.
