Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Several Palestinian protesters started a rally on Saturday in support of the Prophet Muhammad in response to insults directed at him during the so-called “Israeli Flag March” through the area on Tuesday.
Palestinians gathered in the courtyard, but before they began their march from Al-Aqsa to the Old City’s Bab Al Amud (Damascus Gate), the Israeli occupation forces raided the compound through Bab al-Silsila, one of its entrances.
The Israel forces were seen brutally assaulting the Palestinian nonviolent protesters in the Bab Al Amud plaza, spraying pepper gas, and beating them.
