April 28, 2022

Dozens of Muslim worshipers suffocated this morning as the Israeli occupation forces fired tear gas at them while in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Eyewitnesses said that the Israeli occupying forces used a drone to fire tear gas at the worshipers for the second time in a week.

The ambulance crews deployed in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque provided first aid to the injured worshipers in the field.

A massive march was launched in the courtyard of the Dome of the Rock at Al-Aqsa Mosque, after performing the dawn prayer today, during which Palestinian flags were raised, and chants of support for Al-Aqsa were chanted.

An estimated 250,000 worshippers gathered at Al-Aqsa Mosque on Wednesday night to mark one of the holiest nights of the year in Islam, Laylat al-Qadr.
