Nine Palestinians shot as IOF suppressed rally in support of Al-Quds
The Israeli occupation opens fire on Palestinians marching against settlements building and in support of occupied Al-Quds.
Nine Palestinians were wounded by rubber-coated metal bullets, including two children, and dozens suffocated as the Israeli occupation army suppressed the weekly Kafr Qaddoum march against settlements.
Fatah Movement media spokesperson in Qalqilya region, Murad Shteiwi, said Israeli occupation forces attacked the participants in the march that came out in support of occupied Al-Quds with rubber-coated metal bullets. This led to the injury of nine Palestinians, including two children, and dozens of suffocation cases, all of whom were treated on the scene by Palestinian Red Crescent crews.
The march began on the last Friday of the month of Ramadan after performing the Friday prayers from Omar Bin Al-Khattab Mosque, with the participation of hundreds of townspeople, who chanted patriotic slogans in support of Al-Quds and its people stationed in Al-Aqsa.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent had reported earlier today that the Israeli occupation forces stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa following morning prayers, where they fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters against worshipers.
Our correspondent also revealed that the occupation forces were assaulting children and women, forcing them to leave the courtyards of Al-Aqsa mosque.
Furthermore, the Israeli occupation forces were besieging worshipers inside Al-Qibli prayer hall, aiming their guns at worshipers inside the Dome of the Rock Mosque. They withdrew hours later as the worshippers left.
The Israeli occupation has been escalating its attacks on Palestinians during the Holy month of Ramadan, most notably during the past few days. They had attacked worshippers in the holy mosque of Al-Aqsa on Thursday dawn.
