Israeli soldiers and police officers assaulted, on Sunday evening, dozens of Palestinians who gathered for evening prayers near the Bab al-Asbat (The Gate of the Tribes), in occupied East Jerusalem, wounding 21 of them, after preventing them from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said the soldiers shot and injured fifteen Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets, and that six of them suffered moderate wounds that required moving him to a hospital for further treatment.

The PRCS added that the soldiers also assaulted many Palestinians, causing various cuts and bruises to at least six.
