A heroic operation carried out by Palestinian youngsters in the Old City of occupied al-Quds martyred three Palestinians, killed at least two ‘Israeli' occupation soldiers and wounded several others.
The operation took place on Friday morning close to Haram al-Sharif [Temple Mount], Reuters reported, citing the occupation police.
The police announced the closure of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds and prohibition of Friday prayers amid the ‘tensions.'
Haram al-Sharif is home to the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
The occupied territories have already been the scene of increased tensions ever since the occupation forces imposed restrictions on the entry of Palestinian worshipers into the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds in August 2015.
Over 300 Palestinians have been martyred by Zionist force since October that year, when the clashes intensified.
Separately, the Palestine al-Yawm news agency said a Palestinian youth, named as 17-year-old Bara' Hamamdah, was martyred during clashes with ‘Israeli' occupation forces south of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem.
Palestinian sources said the confrontation had also injured two other Palestinians.
