In response to the Israeli offence against Palestinian and especially in Aqsa Mosque, a Palestinian fighter attacked on Thursday night a group of Israeli settlers near of “Tel-Aviv.” in Israel.
Israeli media announced that 3 settlers were killed and other injured.
The incident comes after the Israeli attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the storm into West Bank cities, and unprecedented attack on the Palestinians and Israel.
Israeli polices yesterday suppressed Palestinians inside Al-Aqsa Mosque as the settler storm resumed and according to local sources that heavily-armed police violently suppressed Palestinian worshippers who demonstrated against renewed settler intrusions into Al-Aqsa Mosque, opening gas canisters and rubbe bullets toward the demonstrators and resulting in tens of injuries.
The violent clashes erupted as police allowed hundreds of Israeli settlers to storm into the Al-Aqsa Mosque’ courtyards from the direction of the Moroccan Gate, in celebration of Israeli Independence Day, which saw the ethnic cleansing of more than one million indigenous Palestinians since 74 years ago and turning them into refugees to establish Israeli state in Palestine.
The settlers waved the Israeli flag at Alqatanin Gate one of Al-Aqsa Mosque Gate, and sang Israel’s national anthem.
Police clashed with Palestinians barricading themselves in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and attempted to force them out of the mosque to make room for the settlers.
They also closed the Qibli mosque, denying worshippers access to it, and caused damage to 800-year-old Salah Al-Din pulpit inside the mosque.
Palestinians mobilized to defend Al-Aqsa Mosque in anticipation of the renewed settler storm following called by Israeli Prime Minister Bennett for settlers to tour the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Israel’s “Independence Day”.
Police announced that Al-Aqsa will be open to the settlers from 7:00 AM to 11:00AM and from 1:30 PM to 2:30PM.
On Tuesday, police prevented the call to prayer (Al-Athan) over loudspeakers during Isha at the Al-Aqsa Mosque as Israeli settlers chanted Israel’s national anthem and raise flags.
The police attacks campaign on Palestinians at the Al-Aqsa Mosque is remind us in the 2021 Ramadan tensions in last May, Israeli settler takeover of Palestinian property in Sheikh Jarrah and tension in the Al-Aqsa mosque compound, culminating in Israeli war against Gaza and large-scale demonstrations among Palestinian citizens in Israel.
Tensions further flurried following the forced removal of Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah.
The Al-Aqsa Mosque is considered the third holiest site in Islam.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is in East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories that were occupied by the Israeli forces in 1967.
Palestinians in the coming days will commemorate the Nakba, when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were expelled by Israeli militias to create the state of Israel in 1948.
