Over 40 Palestinians injured after Israeli assault on religious site

The Red Crescent said in a statement that the number of injured, 22 of whom were taken to hospitals, could increase in the coming hours due to the Israelis’ attacks against the thousands of Muslim faithful present at the scene.

Police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the Palestinians, many of whom responded with stones.

Three people were arrested, two for throwing stones and a third for inciting their compatriots.

In the last two weeks, tensions have escalated around the Esplanade of the Mosques after the systematic Israeli incursions to evict Muslims with the aim of allowing the entry of Jews on the occasion of Passover, a holiday that symbolizes the beginning of the exodus from Jerusalem.

The attacks were harshly criticized by Muslim countries, including those with diplomatic relations with Israel such as Jordan.

Faced with the wave of international confrontation and condemnation, Tel Aviv announced that it will prohibit non-Muslims from visiting the religious complex until the end of Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims, which ends this year on May 1st.
