The Palestinian Red Crescent announced this morning in a statement that the number of Palestinians wounded in clashes with Zionist militants in the area of Al-Aqsa Mosque has increased to 205 people. Zionist militias closed the entrances to Al-Aqsa Mosque and brutally suppressed Palestinian worshipers, injuring dozens.
I fear the zionists have raised a generation of right-wing militants. This can only spell trouble for the future.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said in a statement that 205 people were injured in an Israeli attack on Palestinians in the area of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Sheikh Jarrah and Bab al-Amoud.
As a result of the use of rubber bullets and tear gas and sound bombs, 88 injured people, most of them with eyes and face, were taken to hospital and the rest were treated on an outpatient basis, the statement said.
Palestinian hospital sources said that the occupying forces attacked the medical staff inside Al-Aqsa and prevented medical aid from reaching the wounded in the clashes.
Media reports indicate that a large number of worshipers, including the elderly and children, are still being held in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Israeli forces detained dozens of Palestinians
Israeli forces have detained dozens of Palestinians returning from Jerusalem to the occupied West Bank.
According to eyewitnesses, Israeli forces detained dozens of Palestinians returning from the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the West Bank at a military checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem.
Accordingly, some Palestinians were beaten by Israeli forces. Israeli police raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque also caused panic, especially among women and children. Israeli troops and Jewish settlers have stepped up attacks on Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem since the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
According to Palestine Now news website, the Zionist occupiers attacked and beat Palestinian worshipers in the area of Mubarak Al-Aqsa Mosque, Bab Al-Amoud and Sheikh Jarrah Mosque from Friday morning until this morning.
The Zionist occupiers also attacked and beat thousands of Palestinian worshipers near Bab al-Maghriba, firing sound bombs at worshipers. Troops from the occupying regime’s army also sought to bar Palestinian worshipers from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which resulted in clashes between Israeli and Palestinian troops that wounded dozens of Palestinians.
Yesterday and last night, the Zionist militias closed the doors of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacked the Palestinian worshipers in this holy place and beat them.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister denounces the Israeli attack
Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan, has condemned the Israeli attack on Palestinians at the Al Aqsa Mosque complex. “Strongly condemn Israeli Forces’ attack on Palestinians in Qibla-e-Awaal, Al-Aqsa Mosque, particularly during Ramadan, violating all norms of humanity and international law,” he wrote on Twitter. He went on to say, “We reiterate our support for Palestinian people.”
He urged the international community to move quickly to “secure Palestinians and their legitimate rights.”
So far, most Islamic and Arab countries have condemned the actions of Zionist militants in attacking Palestinian worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque and called for international action to counter the aggression of the occupying regime in Jerusalem.
Clashes between Zionist militias and Palestinians in Al-Aqsa Mosque are not from today. This conflict has been seen several times a year since the Israeli uprising.
