Palestinians confront Israeli settlers in Al-Quds, protests in Gaza
The Nablus Brigade of Al-Quds Brigades has announced targeting Israeli forces stationed at Hawara checkpoint, south of Nablus.
Palestinians have confronted hundreds of settlers and Israeli occupation forces in the Old City of occupied Al-Quds.
Violent confrontations eruipted between Palestinian youths and the Israeli occupation forces on Salah El-Din Street, as they stood against the Israeli "Flag March" that began this afternoon.
24 Palestinian civilians were injured in attacks by the Israeli occupation forces and settlers in occupied Al-Quds and 20 Palestinians have been arrested in Bab Al-Amoud area and in the neighborhoods of the Old City and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
A picture of a Palestinian youth standing up to Israeli settlers, as they tried to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque, went viral.
Palestinian media reported that an elderly Palestinian was arrested by the Israeli occupation police for raising the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli march.
Activists on social media circulated a number of video clips of women and elderly women confronting the Israeli occupation forces during their storming of the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Hours ago, a Palestinian drone was launched carrying the Palestinian flag over occupied Al-Quds.
Among the widely circulated clips was an old woman confronting the Israeli occupation forces storming the courtyards of Al-Aqsa.
With a hunched back and leaning on a crutch, the old woman motioned at the IOF soldiers with her cane in defiance.
In another incident, occupation soldiers assaulted and attempted to remove a girl's veil in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, while the IOF attacked anyone who tried to help her.
A number of Israelis assaulted another Palestinian lady by spraying her with gas.

A leader of the Hamas movement, Mohammed Abu Askar, said during the protests in the town of Jabalia in northern Gaza that "Al-Quds has men who defend it and behind them is a resistance that preserves it."
"Al-Quds is ours, and only the flag of Palestine will fly over it," the Hamas leader said.
The mayor of Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza strip, stated that Al-Quds will remain the eternal capital of Palestine, and that "We will never give up on it no matter how great the sacrifices may be."
Hundreds of citizens also participated in a march of the Palestinian flag in the center of Ramallah, denouncing the settlers' attacks and chanting slogans condemning the occupation.
The protests coincide with Sunday's storming of Al-Aqsa, as settlers performed Talmudic prayers, during which they lay on the ground in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa, and others raised Israeli flags under the protection of the police.
"Israel's" provocative 'Flag March' has been going for years. In 2021, the march led to the 11-day aggression on #Gaza Strip. This year, #Palestinians are calling worldwide attention to raising the #Palestinian flag in defiance of the march. #RaiseTheFlag #لنرفع_علم_فلسطين pic.twitter.com/5iyIbFY0iJ— Al Mayadeen English (@MayadeenEnglish) May 28, 2022
