Hundreds of unarmed Palestinians have been injured after heavily-armed Israeli police invaded Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is regarded as the third holiest site in Islam.
According to reports, thousands of Palestinians had gathered after Fajar prayer earlier today when Israeli police entered the mosque forcefully and started torturing innocent worshippers.
The Israeli authorities blocked the roads, preventing ambulances and paramedics from providing treatment to the injured Palestinians.
The Palestinian Red Crescent has claimed that Israeli police have used rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas on Palestinians. Hundreds of people have been injured as a result, but they’re not yet treated.
The invasion of Al-Aqsa mosque comes after far-right Jewish parties pressure the Israeli police to raid the mosque during Passover, a Jewish holiday, which coincides with Ramadan this year.
Israeli police raiding Al-Aqsa Mosque during Ramadan has become a common occurrence. Last year, the mosque was raided on the night of Laylat-ul-Qadar, which is a blessed night in the last ten days of Ramadan. Israeli forces killed hundreds and injured thousands of Palestinians in order to quell countrywide protests triggered by the incident.
