The Israeli police said that Abu Atta will be detained for 24 hours until he goes before a judge on Tuesday.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation condemned the detention of Abu Atta in a statement: “Abu Atta did not commit any crime. He simply attempted to cover what was going on in the Al-Aqsa Mosque area in order to inform the Islamic world about Israeli infringement on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and we call the Israeli court to release him immediately.”
