Israeli occupation arrest Al-Aqsa official.

Ramallah,Sep.17(Petra)-Israeli occupation forces arrested on Monday dawn Head of the Manuscripts Department of Al-Aqsa Mosque Najeh Bakirat in Sur Bahir after they broke into his house south of occupied Jerusalem.

Palestinian sources reported that a number of military vehicles rolled into Bakirat's house amid intensive fire shooting and arrested him.

Bakirat's wife said that her husband suffers from unstable health conditions after a surgery he underwent recently,adding that the occupation authorities prevented the entry of anything to her husband except for his medication. His wife also denounced the arrest of her husband saying that he received a decree banning him from entering into al-Aqsa mosque for six months.

"What is happening to my husband,she added, is only to dissuade him from defending Al-Aqsa Mosque and prevent him from exposing the practices of the Jewish extremists that vandalize the mosque almost on daily basis.
