In Hebron on Friday Palestinians took to the streets to protest against the demolition work Israel is carrying out near Al Azsa mosque in Jerusalem. Three people are suffering of gas inhalation after clashing with Israeli occupation forces.
In Jenin, Tulkarem and Nablus in the northern West Bank similar protests are being reported.
Demolition of the Mugrahbi Gate, one of the main entrances to the Al Aqsa mosque started on Tuesday. Despite various Israeli and Palestinian calls for demolition to be suspended or abandoned, it is ongoing today.
On Friday clashes erupted in the mosque compound between Muslim worshipers and Israeli forces due to the massive military presence in the holy site, and the use of violent ‘crowd control’ devices by Israeli troops and police.
