Clashes erupted Sunday between the Israeli police and Palestinian worshipers after the Israeli police stormed into one of Islam’s holiest places — east Al-Quds’ Al-Aqsa mosque — in a flagrant attempt to desecrate the purest place.

The Israeli troopers forced their way into the sacred Muslim site by opening its doors using wedging metal bars, furniture and other items.

In response, Palestinians pelted the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with stones and threw blocks as they were trying to reach the mosque’s yard.

“Masked rioters fled into the mosque and started to throw stones and blocks at police from inside Al-Aqsa mosque,” the Israeli police claimed. “They threw fireworks directly at police,” they alleged, adding that a number of police were wounded.

“In light of the severe confrontation and the escalating actions of the rioters and with the aim of preventing further injury to police…forces entered a number of metres (yards) inside and closed the doors to the mosque with the rioters inside, restoring order.”

The Israeli regime continues to restrict the entrance of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque.
