April 17, 2022

As worshipers gathered for Al-Fajr (early morning) prayer, Israeli occupying forces have broken into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, two days after raiding it and detaining hundreds of worshipers and injuring tens others.

And local sources reported that a number of Muslim worshipers were injured and others were detained, this morning, Sunday, during the Israeli occupation forces storming of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, to secure the colonial settlers’ collective incursions, in response to calls made by the organizations of the alleged temple on the occasion of the so-called Hebrew Passover.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society in Jerusalem stated that its crews dealt with 17 injuries during the attacks of the occupation forces on those present in the Bab Al-Asbat area and the surrounding areas of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, 5 of which were transferred to hospitals.
The sources added that the Israeli occupation forces stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque en masse, assaulted the worshipers and those stationed in its courtyards, and detained three young men, amid heavy firing of sound and tear gas grenades, in an attempt to force the worshipers out in preparation for the settlers' provocative incursions.

Videos circulating online showed Israeli invading forces assaulting women at the doors of the Dome of the Rock, forcing the worshipers to enter the Al-Aqsa Halls, and locking them inside.

Herds of zionist settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and performed Talmudic rituals and provocative tours on its compound, on the occasion of the so-called Hebrew Passover.
