Palestinians are staging massive demonstrations after Friday prayers to condemn the continuing Israeli violations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
This morning, clashes broke out between the worshipers in al-Aqsa mosque and the occupation forces after they banned those under the age of forty years of access the mosque.
“In light of intelligence received indicating the intention of Arab youths to disturb the peace at Friday prayers on Temple Mount, it was decided to limit the age of Muslim worshippers,” claimed a police statement, using the Hebrew term for Al-Aqsa holy mosque.
The Israeli police beefed up their numbers in Al-Quds to face the worshipers and closed roads in the Old City.
Also on Friday, four elements of the Israeli Arabized Undercover Units were injured in Mount Scopus in occupied Jerusalem.
Palestinian resistance movement Hamas dubbed this day a “day of rage” to coincide with the Friday prayers.
Several Palestinians were injured this week after the Israeli Defense Forces clashed with worshipers in Al-Aqsa mosque firing a barrage of sound bombs, toxic tear gas and rubber bullets on them and causing damage to the sacred mosque.
