Wafa news agency reported that Israeli soldiers stormed the holy site again on Monday morning and removed worshipers from its courtyards to allow settlers to enter the compound.
She explained that the forces imposed a siege on the chapels, as snipers climbed the roofs of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and the adjacent buildings.
The report added that the occupation forces prevented young men under the age of 25 from entering the mosque and closed the area adjacent to Al-Wad Street in the Old City of Jerusalem, as settlers stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
In a show of support for those facing intensified Israeli violence, hundreds of people in various parts of the Israeli-occupied territories took to the streets to protest attacks by Israeli forces on worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site.
Clashes erupted between demonstrators and the occupation soldiers in the city of Nazareth on Sunday night, as the participants denounced the illegal and provocative measures taken by the Tel Aviv regime in Jerusalem, and its disregard for the historical and legal situation in Al-Aqsa Mosque. .
Young men blocked a main street and set tires on fire. During the confrontations, the Israeli occupation forces arrested more than ten people, including girls.
Elsewhere in the center of the northern coastal city of Haifa, dozens participated in a mass demonstration called by Palestinian movements and activists, in defense of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Extremist settler groups threatened to organize a counter-protest at the same location.
A Palestinian youth was also wounded by Israeli forces’ bullets during confrontations in the Al-Tur neighborhood, which is inhabited by an Arab majority, which is about one kilometer east of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Clashes also erupted in the Jabal Mukaber area between Israeli forces and young demonstrators, but no injuries were reported.
In addition, a young man was shot and wounded during confrontations with the Israeli forces in the center of the city of Hebron in the southern West Bank, also known as the city of Hebron.
Local sources, who asked not to be identified, stated that the dead man was shot in the knee by an Israeli sniper deployed in areas overlooking the Bab al-Zawiya neighborhood.
The clashes erupted as people participated in a march called by the Palestinian Prisoners Club – an independent and non-governmental Palestinian organization representing former and current prisoners – to celebrate Palestinian Prisoner’s Day and solidarity with detainees in Israeli prisons.
A large number of participants carried torches and chanted slogans in support of the prisoners and denounced the international community and the Arabs for their silence about what is happening to the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons.
Meanwhile, the Israeli army has reinforced the so-called Iron Dome missile system on the border with the besieged Gaza Strip.
According to the Israeli regime’s public station, Kan, the reinforcement comes amid fears that the Palestinian resistance factions stationed in the poor coastal enclave will launch a barrage of rockets in retaliation for the recent wave of aggression against worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Almost a year ago, similar atrocities against Palestinians in the occupied territories triggered a war between the Israeli army and resistance groups in Gaza, which erupted in protest of Israeli violence.
This year, the Israeli regime is already on high alert of the possibility of another war, as resistance groups in Gaza have warned of dangerous repercussions awaiting Israel if it continues to target and kill Palestinians.
