Israeli soldiers forced, on Monday morning, traders from occupied Jerusalem to close their shops.
Al RayÂ sources said that the occupation ordered the traders to close their shops in Salah al-Din, al-Sultan Suleiman, and al-Rashid streets, in the Old City district of Jerusalem.
The sources also explained that the soldiers spread out in Salah al-Din street and in the downtown area, ordering the traders to close their shops amid a state of tension .
The command was issued after anÂ Israeli soldier shot Â Ayman al-kurd (20 years old), in Rass Al-Amood neighborhood, Silwan, south of Al-Aqsa Mosque, for reportedlyÂ stabbing two so-called “border guards” at Bab A-Sahera gate.
The border guards were injured and sent to a local hospital.
Also on Monday, extremist Israeli settlers headed by the American-bornÂ rabbi Yehuda Glick resumed their regular raidsÂ on al-Aqsa Mosque, via the Moroccan gate, under heavy guard of Israeli police.
Jerusalemite sources reported that the settlers stormed the courtyards of theÂ mosque in groups accompanied by rabbis.
The sources reported that knownÂ extremist rabbi Yehuda Glick tried to storm the courtyard of the holy mosque, but performed Talmudic rituals at Alqtanin gate.
WorshippersÂ defended the Islamic holy siteÂ and banned the settlers from touring.
Israeli settlers raid the courtyards of al-Aqsa MosqueÂ on an almost daily basis,Â in order to set up aÂ temporal and spatial division of the Islamic holy site.
