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 evening while allowed settler raids of the Mosque.
The Israeli forces have violently attacked and beating Palestinian youths and women in the mosque.
Several injuries were also reported among the worshipers as they suffocated with tear gas canisters fired at them by the forces at Bab Al Amud (Damascus Gate), one of the Old City’s entrances.
Israeli forces have also detained more than 20 Palestinians at the courtyards of the mosque today, including at least 6 women.
More than 1500 Israeli settlers raided the courtyards of the mosque on Sunday 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.
