Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- 378 Israeli colonial settlers broke into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem earlier on Thursday.
To mark the so-called Israel’s Independence Day, dozens of well-armed Israeli occupation forces raided the Al-Aqsa mosque, at around 8:am local time, to make a way for settlers to break into the holy site.
The occupation forces attacked and beat the Palestinian worshipers inside the holy site. They fired tear gas canisters, sound bombs, and rubber-coated metal bullets towards the worshipers to disperse them, injuring at least 12 people.
Local sources said the forces also blockaded the worshipers inside the prayer halls to empty the courtyards of its worshipers to secure the settlers’ entry.
Al-Qastal documented that 378 colonial settlers broke into the mosque. The settlers performed provocative Talmudic prayers and raised the Israeli occupation flags after entering the mosque through the Al-Mughrabi Gate which is under full-Israeli control.
