Clashes broke out Monday morning inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque between the Zionist occupation forces who stormed the mosque and the Palestinian worshipers
Clashes broke out Monday morning inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque between the Zionist occupation forces who stormed the mosque and the Palestinian worshipers, specifically near the Al-Qibli mosque.
The confrontations took place after Zionist troops were deployed to the area for the Jewish Sukkot holiday and as settlers continue their acts of violence in the holy site.
Israeli soldiers fired gas canisters and sound bombs heavily at the worshipers stationed in the mosque, resulting in the outbreak of fires on the Al-Qibli mosque doors, which was surrounded with barricades to separate settlers from the Palestinians there.
They even sprayed pepper gas towards the worshipers inside the mosque leaving several injuries and suffocation cases.
Also on Sunday, clashes erupted across the compound after Israeli police stormed the holy site and fired rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades at Palestinian protesters.
Zionist police statement said young Palestinians "threw stones and fireworks at police and border police forces," who responded with "riot dispersal means", a moderated term for the use of excessive force and violence against stone-throwers.
Since September 13, Zionist forces have attacked and injured dozens of Palestinians who have held rallies against Zionist assaults on the al-Aqsa Mosque.
