Global News published this video item, entitled “At least 80 injured in Jerusalem as clashes erupt on Laylat al-Qadr” – below is their description.
Clashes erupted once again between Palestinian protesters and Israeli police, this time outside the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday night as tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers prayed at the nearby Al-Aqsa Mosque on Islam’s holy night of Laylat al-Qadr.
At least 80 people were injured, including minors and a one-year-old, and 14 were taken to hospital, the Palestine Red Crescent said. Israeli police said at least one officer was hurt.
“They do not want us to pray. There is a fight every day, every day there are clashes,” said Lod resident Mahmoud al-Marbua. Pointing to police chasing youths and firing thunder-flashes at them, he added: “Look how they are firing at us. How can we live?”
Tensions have mounted in the city throughout the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, amid growing anger over the potential eviction of Palestinians from Jerusalem homes on land claimed by Jewish settlers.
