The police assaulted the worshipers as dozens of Israeli fanatics gathered near the mosque and attempted to invade, especially since they will be marking what they call “the destruction of the temple”, Tuesday.

The al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowment and Heritage has reported that the police fired stun grenades, gas bombs, and rubber-coated metal bullets at the Palestinian worshipers wounding ten.

Local youth hurled stones and shoes at the invading police and soldiers.

A local guard of the mosque said that a large police force stormed the compound through the al-Magharba Gate, and assaulted the protesters.

Israeli fanatics frequently attempt to invade the mosque, and have frequently assaulted and beat local worshipers.
