Bulk283OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-Israeli police on Sunday assaulted Muslim guards at holy al-Aqsa Mosque in Occupied Jerusalem.

Feras Dabes, a media coordinator of the Islamic Waqf, said Israeli policemen were escorting about 500 Israeli settlers who forced their way into the site to perform rituals, provoking clashes with Muslim worshipers and Islamic Waqf personnel.

The Israeli police brutality resulted in the injury of a number of Waqf personnel. The police also arrested the guard Mohamed al-Salhi after they violently beat him.

The Islamic Waqf personnel are in charge of running the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the third holiest site in Islam.

Over recent days, tension has prevailed across Occupied Jerusalem as Israeli settlers have been gearing up to celebrate the anniversary of Israel’s occupation of Jerusalem’s eastern part, marked on May 13.

Sometime earlier, Israeli fanatic organizations called for stepping up break-ins at al-Aqsa Mosque on the occasion of the so-called “unification day”.
