The Israeli authorities arrested the Palestinian activist, Mona Al-Kurd, in the city of Jerusalem.
The Kurds had played a prominent role in the protests against the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem.
The Israeli police said that they arrested a 23-year-old girl from Sheikh Jarrah on suspicion of participating in riots and demonstrations that included violent acts.
Many Palestinians view Mona al-Kurd and her brother Muhammad as powerful voices in Jerusalem who have succeeded in drawing worldwide attention to the plight of Palestinians in the city.
The brothers live in Sheikh Jarrah, a neighborhood in East Jerusalem where Israel’s intention to seize homes where Palestinian families have lived for decades has sparked protests in the city.
The tension in Sheikh Jarrah and the surroundings of the Al-Aqsa Mosque inflamed feelings, which ended in a war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
The arrest of Mona Al-Kurd came hours after the detention of Guevara Al-Budairi, Al-Jazeera correspondent, during a live broadcast from the Sheikh Jarrah area, which reflects the fragility of the situation there.
