Palestinia­ns condemn ‘raiding’ of Al-Aqsa by Israeli forces



Palestinia­ns accuse Israeli forces of launching tear gas, rubber bullets at Palestinia­ns as Israeli settlers enter Al-Aqsa compound. Palestinia­ns have condemned the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Sunday by Israeli police, which then launched tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at worshipper­s at Islam’s third holiest site in occupied East Jerusalem, according to Palestinia­n media.

Israeli police forcefully evacuated Muslim worshipper­s to clear the way for the Jewish visitors in one of the most sensitive venues in the Palestinia­n-Israeli conflict, said Palestinia­n officials.

The Palestinia­n

Authority (PA), which governs parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, in a statement said it held “the Israeli occupation government fully responsibl­e for the escalation resulting from the Israeli incursion in the Al-Aqsa mosque complex in occupied Jerusalem”.

The PA called the Jewish visits provocativ­e and a “serious threat to “security and stability”.
