Jerusalem24 – Last night, clashes erupted in a number of neighborhoods of the occupied city of Jerusalem, coinciding with the exhumation of the Yusufiya cemetery near the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Local sources reported that the Israeli forces arrested two young men, Qais Sharha and Naim Al-Amouri, from the Al-Masrara area in the city of Jerusalem, and that the Israeli forces deployed heavily at the Damascus Gate Square and attacked the Jerusalemites there.

Sources in the Red Crescent said that the Israeli police prevented their crews from providing first aid to an injured person at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, confrontations erupted in a number of neighborhoods in the towns of Silwan and al-Tur, during which the Israeli forces fired gas bombs and sound bombs at the Palestinians.

Two Palestinians were injured when the Israeli forces attacked worshipers near the Yusufiya cemetery in occupied Jerusalem last night.

The crews of the Red Crescent in Jerusalem said that they dealt with two injuries with sound bombs, which were treated in the field during confrontations with the Israeli forces at the Lion’s Gate near the Yusufia cemetery, and that one of the injured was an ambulance officer from the Red Crescent.

Young men set fire to a mobile iron warehouse (container), belonging to the Israeli municipality and the Nature Authority, which was placed inside the cemetery of Al-Yusifiyah cemetery in Jerusalem, in rejection of a plan to convert the cemetery into a biblical garden.
