Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation forces have brutally assaulted Palestinian worshipers in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied city of Jerusalem on Sunday while allowing settler raids of the Mosque.
The Israeli forces were seen brutally attacking and beating Palestinian youths and women simultaneous with the extremist settler raids of the mosque.
The forces have also detained over 10 Palestinians, including two women.
Several injuries were also reported among Palestinian worshipers as they suffocated with tear gas canisters fired at them by the forces.
The forces have also cut the electrical wires of loudspeakers to prevent the Adhan (call to prayer) in the mosque.
Since Sunday morning, more than 1200 Israeli settlers have raided the mosque under the occupation forces protection.
Lately, settler groups have called for massive raids into Al Aqsa mosque on Sunday, on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah, one of the holy pilgrimage days in Islam.
The settler groups called for the raid to mark the so-called ‘Tisha B’Av’, a fast day which marks ‘the destruction of the Temple’, as zionists believe.
The groups have also called for protests in the Old City on the same day.
The latest fight between the occupation state and the resistance was sparked by settlers’ raids into Al Aqsa mosque as well as the Israeli ethnic cleansing against Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam which located in occupied Jerusalem.
