Zionist troops attack worshippers in Al-Aqsa Mosque

Zionist regime’s troops raided the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in East Al-Quds early Wednesday, injuring hundreds of Palestinian people.

A group of Palestinians barricaded themselves inside the Al-Qibli Prayer Hall in Masjid al-Aqsa after Zionist settlers called for a raid on the mosque.


Palestinians attempted to prevent police from entering by closing its doors.


Surrounding the Al-Qibli Prayer Hall, Israeli police went up to the roof of the mosque, smashed some of the windows and initially intervened with sound bombs against the worshippers inside. Some of the people in the mosque tried to resist the police by throwing fireworks.


The Zionist regime’s police then entered the prayer hall and fired a barrage of sound bombs, tear gas and rubber-coated bullets.


The Palestinian Red Crescent said that hundreds of Palestinians were injured from rubber-tipped bullets and police beatings.


Zionist troops also arrested at least 400 Palestinians.


Zionist forces and Jewish settlers frequently carry out raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque to provoke Palestinians.


For Muslims, Al-Aqsa represents Islam’s third-holiest site. Israel occupied East Al-Quds, where al-Aqsa is located, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. It annexed the entire city in 1980 in a move never recognized by the international community.
