Israeli police have stormed Jerusalem's al-Aqsa Mosque compound to disperse Palestinian protesters, and fired tear-gas canisters and stun grenades to disperse the demonstrators following Friday praye
30-50 worshippers were injured in confrontations with Israeli forces… Unknown number locked inside the Aqsa Mosque as Israeli occupation forces ( IOF ) chained the doors from outside and prevented ambulances from reaching the injured.
Najeh Btirat, an official with the Muslim clerical authority that administers the compound, said the clash followed a mosque sermon on the issue.
"The Friday sermon focused on the Islamic sites that are being targeted by Israel and the need to preserve them,"
Clashes there on Sunday have been linked in part to a decision by Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, to include two sites in the occupied West Bank on a list of Israeli heritage sites.
Skirmishes also broke out after Friday prayers in the West Bank city of Hebron, but no serious injuries were reported.
A group of about 100 Palestinians protested outside the holy site known to to Muslims as the Ibrahimi mosque and to Jews as the Cave of the Patriarchs.
