Clashes flare as Israelis try to grab Palestinian land near al-Aqsa

Clashes near Al-Aqsa

Violent clashes burst out south of holy al-Aqsa Mosque, in Occupied Jerusalem, after Israeli settlers attempted to seize a Palestinian land lot.

A PIC news correspondent said a group of Israeli settlers, escorted by a special unit, broke into Batn al-Hawa neighborhood, in Silwan, and attempted to grab hold of a Palestinian land owned by al-Rajabi and Basbous families.

The occupation forces claimed that a court decision signaled a green light for the settlers’ takeover of the land but refused to show the alleged court rule to the land owners.

The Israeli soldiers showered Palestinian homes in the area with pepper spray and attacked the anti-occupation youth with batons and rifle butts, leaving dozens wounded.

A court hearing is set to be held by the end of July to decide on the targeted land lot.
