Palestine: Israeli soldiers assault children in Al Aqsa Mosque

IMEMC News & Agencies: The media coordinator of the Foundation of the Islamic Waqf in Jerusalem, Firas al-Debs, told Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency that Israeli forces pepper-sprayed a group of children and beat them when they tried to enter the mosque to participate in summer camp.

Israeli occupation forces assaulted and injured guards at the Al Aqsa Mosque, Monday morning, at the door of al-Asbat, while detaining one other.

Al-Debs added that soldiers beat the guards severely when they tried to protect the children, injuring four of them.

He pointed out that guard forces arrested Moayad Hashem after assaulting him, and took him to an unknown destination.

He said that around 25 settlers stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa in the morning hours, under the protection of Israeli police.

Al-Debs explained that worshipers inside the mosque confronted settler incursions with chanting and expelled them outside of the courtyards.
