A video of Israeli police arresting in Jerusalem a donkey belonging to Palestinians has gone viral on social media .
Shehab News Agency reported that seven Israeli military police surrounded the donkey and arrested it in Silwan neighborhood.
They then detained it for some time before releasing it. No reason was given as to why it was being held, middleeast monitor.com quoted sources as saying.
Israeli occupation forces regularly arrest Palestinians without charge and confiscate their property in an effort to hinder their lives. International human rights organisations have repeatedly condemned Israel’s punitive measures against Palestinians.
