The IOF arrested the director of the manuscript archives at al-Aqsa

Sheikh Najeh Barikat was arrested in the early morning hours at his home in Jerusalem. According to his son’s account of the arrest, a large force of soldiers and shin bet agents broke into the family home, handcuffed the Sheikh and led him away with them.

Earlier this year, Sheikh Barikat was prevented by the IOF from making any statements to the media until December 2012 since he has been under investigation for alleged “incitement” and he has often been prevented from entering the al-Aqsa compound by the IOF.
