IOF arrested 40 Palestinians following Aqsa confrontations

NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israeli occupation police revealed that they arrested dozens of Palestinian youth over the past few days on the pretext of their participation in defending the Aqsa Mosque against extremist Jewish settlers who stormed the Aqsa plazas during the week.

The Hebrew radio quoted police sources that the Israeli occupation police arrested more than 40 Palestinians who hail from Jerusalem and 1948-occupied Palestinian areas accusing them of throwing stones at IOF troops at Maghareba gate, one of the main gates of the Aqsa Mosque, during confrontations that took place between Palestinian worshippers and extremist Jewish settlers who attempted to storm the mosque.

There were many calls made for Palestinians in Jerusalem and 1948-occupied areas to keep regular presence at the Aqsa Mosque to protect against escalating Israeli aggressions against it and against other Muslim and Christian holy places in the holy city.

Al-Quds International Institution has earlier warned that the coming few weeks are expected to witness an escalation in settler attacks against the holy shrine.
