The agency stated that the young man, Omar Yasser Shehadeh, was wounded "while trying to cross the wall to reach his workplace in the 1948 territories, and they (the soldiers) arrested him and took him to an Israeli hospital."  The agency also reported that Israeli settlers severely beat two shepherds in the village of Al-Mughayyir, east of Ramallah (center), injuring and bruising them.  She said that the two injured were taken to hospital for treatment.  In the city of Hebron (south), Palestinian journalist Amer al-Shaludi told Anadolu Agency that an Israeli soldier beat a young man while he was passing near a military checkpoint in the center of the city.  He added that the young man sustained injuries to the face and nose and received field treatment.  Meanwhile, the local (non-governmental) Ma'an News Agency said that clashes took place between Palestinian youths and the Israeli army in the vicinity of Al-Quds University, in the town of Abu Dis (central), which resulted in dozens of cases of asphyxiation.  The agency stated that the Israeli army fired gas bombs inside the university (non-governmental), in conjunction with a student stand "in support of Al-Aqsa Mosque, and condemning the continuous aggression of the occupation against our people, especially in Jerusalem and Jenin."  For days, tension has prevailed in the city of Jerusalem and the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, in light of calls by Israeli settlers and Jewish "temple groups" to storm Al-Aqsa, coinciding with the Jewish Passover holiday.  The West Bank is also witnessing tension, in which the Israeli army has killed 18 Palestinians since the beginning of this April, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

"Instagram has largely banned me from publishing my story only when its content is about Palestine, and when I post about Palestine I am immediately banned in the shadows," she wrote in a statement.   The term “shadow ban” means being restricted to a specific social media platform, and only the account owner and their direct followers can see their posts.  Hadid had condemned the Israeli army's violations against worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.  This came by posting many photos and videos through the "Stories" feature on her personal account on Instagram.  Bella Hadid said: "What the Israeli soldiers do in Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the middle of prayer, and in the blessed month of Ramadan, only mentally ill people do," adding: "I will not allow anyone to justify the actions of the Israeli army!"  Hadid is the youngest daughter of Palestinian-American real estate developer Mohammed Hadid, who immigrated to the United States as a teenager, and who married Dutch-born model Yolanda Hadid.      Rabbi: Talks are underway to establish the first Jewish neighborhood in the Emirates The Jerusalem Post newspaper quoted the chief rabbi in the Emirates that talks are underway to establish the first Jewish neighborhood in the Gulf Cooperation Council states, comprising colleges and institutions for thousands of Jews who made their residence in the Emirates, according to the Jerusalem Post.  The chief rabbi in the Emirates said that talks are underway to establish the first Jewish neighborhood in the Gulf Cooperation Council, which will include colleges and institutions for thousands of Jews who have made the Emirates their residence, according to the Jerusalem Post.  The rabbi did not say with whom he was talking, but said he had spoken with a few real estate developers about the matter.  The UAE has not previously announced plans to create a ghetto.  The Chief Rabbi of the Emirates Jewish Council, Elie Ebadi, leads the Association of Gulf Jewish Communities (AGJC), which was established in 2021 to bring together the Jews of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.  Normalization has turned Dubai into a major Israeli tourist destination, and the UAE alone has received more than 200,000 Jewish tourists since the peace agreement.  Ebadi expected this number to quadruple over the next five years, and said, "This means that the time has come for the UAE to have a Jewish neighborhood, with hotels, shopping centers, schools and a temple."  "We will see more houses of worship, schools - from nurseries to higher education - and Jewish rituals, more kosher dining establishments, and a community center," Ebadi added.  "We'd like a neighborhood with a synagogue, private homes, condominiums, hotels, and shopping malls. That's something I'm looking forward to and talks are underway," the rabbi explained.
