The Red Crescent reported on the number of wounded that resulted from to the repression of the Israeli military, who were stoned on arrival at the scene by dozens of young people.

The clashes to protect the entrance to the sanctuary from Jewish settlers broke out in the morning after a military operation kicked off, which Muslims consider a provocation.

The new violation of the sacred site is the result of calls by extremist Jewish organizations to carry out a massive and provocative visit during the Passover holiday, which begins the commemoration of the Jewish exodus, the official Wafa news agency reported.

According to press reports, numerous faithful are inside the Aqsa Mosque to protect the sanctuary, which was assaulted last Friday by the military, with the outcome of more than 300 wounded and hundreds arrested.

Arab television networks showed footage of soldiers beating and launching tear gas at Palestinians in an attempt to drive them out of the area.

The Israeli Army Radio announced that at least nine Palestinians were arrested during the raid.
