For the Fifth Consecutive Day, Settlers Storm Al-Aqsa

Jerusalem24 – The Israeli forces withdrew from Al-Aqsa Mosque after securing the settlers’ incursions into its courtyards.

The aggression on Al-Aqsa resulted in the injury of about 27 worshipers, and the arrest of 3 others, as a result of the firing of rubber bullets, sound bombs, and pepper gas toward the worshipers inside the Qibli Prayer Hall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in addition to the assault on the worshippers there.

During their storming of Al-Aqsa, the Israeli forces prevented ambulance crews from providing treatment to some of the injured inside the Al-Qibli prayer hall.

According to Jerusalemite sources, at least one case was described as serious after being hit by a rubber coated bullet in the face, and the Israeli forces prevented him from being transferred from inside the Qibli Prayer Hall by an ambulance.

After the withdrawal of the occupation forces, the injured were taken to hospitals.

According to the Islamic Endowments, 762 settlers stormed Al-Aqsa today, amid tight protection from the occupation forces.

This is the fifth day in a row that Al-Aqsa is stormed to secure protection from the settlers’ intrusion. The Israeli government had decided to stop the incursions starting tomorrow, Friday, and that Thursday would be the last day of the incursions, until the end of the blessed month of Ramadan.

The “temple groups” called on the settlers to intensify their storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque today after the Israeli government’s decision, and this explains the large numbers that stormed the mosque today.
