THREE EMPLOYEES ARRESTED
Firas al-Dibs, a spokesman of the Jordan-run authority, said in a statement that the three were captured while carrying out a minor restoration work in the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex.
The captured were identified as Bassam Al-Hallaq, the head of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound Reconstruction Committee, deputy Taha Aweida and another employee.
Al-Dibs went on to describe the Israeli move as "an intervention in their reconstruction work". Israeli police have yet to comment on the development.
