This morning, local sources reported the gathering of Palestinian worshipers in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque to protest against the illegal entry of Zionist settlers and their clashes with Zionist regime forces.
During the clashes, Israeli forces fired tear gas, plastic bullets and sound bombs at Palestinians in support of the settlers, and detained a number of Palestinian protesters, and prevented medical personnel to enter Al-Aqsa Mosque to help the wounded people.
“Dozens of wounded are being held in the al-Qibli mosque, and the Israeli military is blocking aid to the wounded,” a source told ISWNews. He added: Despite all the incidents that have taken place since 7:30 local time, not a single settler has entered Al-Aqsa Mosque due to the resistance of the Palestinians.
So far more than 278 Palestinians have been injured in the clashes, more than 15 of whom have been directly hit in the eye by plastic bullets fired by the Zionist military, and 80 percent of them have been injured by direct plastic bullets.
Last night, the Israeli military also attacked a gathering of Palestinians in Bab al-Amoud to disperse them.
The Israeli army has increased the number of Iron Dome systems in occupied southern Palestine in response to possible retaliatory attacks by the Palestinian resistance.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, the number of injured had risen to 305, with seven seriously injured. Hebrew sources also announced that during the clashes last night and today in Al-Aqsa Mosque, 21 members of the Zionist regime police were injured.
