Israeli police attack worshippers at Al Aqsa Mosque

Gaza  (HRNW) Israeli forces have injured dozens of Palestinian worshipers at the Al Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem.

The attacks wounded some 20 people, according to a written statement by the Palestinian Red Crescent. Two of the injured were taken to a nearby hospital, the group said.

Witnesses inside the compound said that after Friday prayers many Palestinians stayed at the premises to celebrate the ceasefire between Hamas and the Israeli government.

“They were singing and chanting when a contingent of the Israeli police [stationed] next to the compound came into the compound and started using crowd control measures that they use all the time, including stun grenades, smoke bombs and tear gas,” Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan, reporting from occupied East Jerusalem, said.
