RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Clashes erupted between Palestinian youths and Jewish extremist groups, protected by Israeli police and soldiers, in the occupied city of Jerusalem at dawn Tuesday, after extremist settlers attacked Palestinian citizens and their properties.
Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan said in a statement that a number of Jerusalemites sustained different injuries after being attacked with stones by Jewish settlers during a march on the anniversary of the destruction of the alleged Temple.
“Another group of settlers near Bab al-Asbat Street surrounded four Palestinian cars and destroyed three of them, wounding Palestinians who were inside the vehicles. The settlers were protected by the Israeli forces that attacked the Palestinian young men”, the center pointed out.
Jewish settlers launched a march to commemorate the destruction of the Temple from Damascus Gate in Jerusalem towards the Buraq Wall, while the Israeli occupation police closed several streets to provide security to the marchers.
Wadi Hilweh Information Center reported that the Israeli police closed the Mughrabi Gate on Tuesday morning, and canceled the “foreign tourism program.”
It pointed out that dozens of Palestinians were present in the Al-Aqsa Mosque to respond to calls for storming Al-Aqsa by Jewish extremist groups.
The center confirmed that some Jewish groups have organized provocative tours at the gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque, during which they performed rituals and chanted racist slogans.
