Global News published this video item, entitled “Israeli forces fire tear gas, stun grenades at Palestinians inside Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem” – below is their description.
Muslim worshippers in Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem were attacked by Israeli forces on Monday who shot rubber bullets and stun grenades as Jewish nationalist groups gathered at the entrance of the holy site demanding entry to mark “Jerusalem Day.”
The men gathered on the red prayer carpets as the sound of explosions echoed outside and smoke was dispersing.
The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said more than 275 Palestinians were injured in the violence, and at least 205 of them were taken to hospitals. Several of the Palestinians were in critical condition and police said 12 officers were injured.
Jerusalem Day is the anniversary of Israel’s capture of parts of the city in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
Israel views all of Jerusalem as its capital, including the eastern part that it annexed in a move that has not won international recognition.
Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of a state they seek in the occupied West Bank and Gaza.
