50 Palestinians Injured As ’Israel’s’ Quds Crackdown Continues
Local Editor

Zionist occupation forces injured more than 50 Palestinians in a fresh crackdown on protesters demanding an end to restrictions outside the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in the occupied East al-Quds.

50 Palestinians Injured As "Israel's" Quds Crackdown Continues

Clashes between Palestinian worshippers and ‘Israeli' regime forces outside the mosque compound continued for a sixth consecutive day on Thursday as the enemy officials refused to heed growing international calls to remove metal detectors recently installed at the entrance to the holy site.

Meanwhile, reports added that some of those injured in the clashes were in serious conditions and at least one protester needed surgery.

The clashes came after worshippers massed outside the mosque for evening prayers. Like previous days this week, Muslims followed recommendations by clerics not to submit to the new ‘Israeli' measures by passing through the detectors to enter the mosque.

The ‘Israeli' apartheid regime placed the detectors in front of the site, generally known as the Noble Sanctuary, on July 14 after a reported shootout near the compound left two ‘Israeli' soldiers and three Palestinians dead. ‘Israelis' refused calls for the removal of the detectors which have been contested by Jordan, the official custodian of the area.

Public anger over the Zionist measures is expected to boil on Friday, when Muslims from across the occupied Palestinian territories will turn in their thousands to attend Friday prayers. Clerics called on people to shut all nearby mosques to attend the prayers and protests outside al-Aqsa, unless the restrictions were scrapped.

For its part, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, issued a statement on Thursday, saying Friday would be "a day of rage" against ‘Israel.'

"Let Friday be a turning point in the battle in the defense of al-Quds and al-Aqsa," Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh added in a televised speech.
