Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “🇵🇸 Where will Israel’s assault on Palestinians end? | The Stream” – below is their description.
Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and Israeli-besieged Gaza have for days faced a series of increasingly severe Israeli assaults that have killed dozens of people and wounded hundreds more.
Israeli jets began air raids on Gaza on May 10, soon after Hamas’s military wing fired rockets towards Israel in reaction to Israeli security forces storming the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam’s third holiest site, and firing rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas at worshippers.
The Israeli assault on the mosque followed days of Palestinian-led protests in East Jerusalem against the widely-expected expulsion of Palestinian families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood. Right-wing Jewish settlers are trying to wrest control of the land that the homes have stood on for decades, and have the backing of far-right Israeli politicians.
In this episode of The Stream, we’ll look at what’s happening in Gaza and occupied East Jerusalem and ask what it will take to stop the violence.
