Dozens reportedly injured after Israeli forces storm Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem amid ongoing Palestinian protests
Numerous people have reportedly been injured after Israeli forces raided Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, the second time since Friday, amid soaring tensions over Israeli plans to forcibly evict Palestinian families from their homes.
Israeli security personnel used tear gas and stun grenades while storming the holy site, according to eyewitness reports. Dozens of people have been injured, the Middle East Eye reported, citing religious authorities. At least three people have been transported to a nearby hospital to receive treatment for their injuries, Turkish media reported, citing the Palestine Red Crescent.
Footage posted to social media appears to show a skirmish outside the mosque between Palestinians and Israeli forces. Protesters are seen throwing rocks as loud bangs can be heard, likely from crowd-control munitions being fired by police.
