Over 300 Palestinians injured in Al-Aqsa raid
Israeli forces on Monday once again stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque, injuring hundreds of Palestinians worshipers and protestors.
The recent attack came ahead of Jerusalem Day Flag March, organised by Zionists to mark the Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem which happened in 1967.
Palestinian Red Crescent confirmed media that more than 300 people had been wounded so far during the violence at Al-Aqsa and the surrounding areas of occupied land.
Israeli forces fired rubber-coated bullets, tear gas, and sound bombs at Palestinians who were protesting forced evictions carried out by Israeli right-wing settlers in Sheikh Jarrah.
Nour Mtour, a Palestinian woman, told Al Jazeera that Israeli forces were firing rubber bullets randomly at everyone. “Snipers went on the roof of the gate at the mosque compound and began to shoot rubber bullets at everyone – women, men, everyone,” the woman added.
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday condemned the violent acts of Israeli forces. “We reiterate support for Palestinian people. International community must take immediate action to protect Palestinians & their legitimate rights,” the premier wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, different countries including the United Sates, human rights groups and the United Nation have expressed their concerns related to the ongoing violence.
