Zionist policemen on Monday stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem, and fired stun grenades and rubber-coated bullets at Palestinian worshippers inside the holy site, a Palestinian guard of the site said.
“Dozens of Israeli policemen stormed Al-Aqsa compound through Al-Magharbeh Gate and attacked worshippers at Al-Qebali Mosque inside the complex,” the guard told media outlets on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to media.
“The Israeli police fired stun grenades and rubber bullets in a bid to force the worshippers out,” he said, adding that the worshippers responded by hurling the Zionist troops with stones and shoes.
According to the guard, the attack came to open room for Jewish settlers to force their way into the holy site on the Jewish anniversary of the so-called ‘destruction of the temple,’ which would fall on Tuesday.
Tension continues to run high in the occupied West Bank amid Zionist devastating onslaught against the blockaded Gaza Strip.
The Zionist offensive on Gaza has so far left 1865 Palestinians – mostly civilians -dead and 9470 injured.
