Israeli soldiers injured dozens of Palestinians in the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in the al-Qibli Mosque in the holy compound, in the occupied Palestinian capital Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Dozens of soldiers and police officers invaded the courtyard of the holy site and assaulted many Palestinians with batons before firing dozens of rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs, causing dozens of injuries.

The soldiers also surrounded dozens of worshipers in the al-Qibli Mosque and attacked them, causing injuries.

The army and the police also assaulted Palestinian journalists and forced them out of the courtyards of the holy site in preparation for allowing dozens of colonizers into the holy compound.

It is worth mentioning that Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennet issued orders allowing the illegal colonizers to invade and tour the courtyards of the holy site to celebrate “Israel’s independence,” the illegal occupation and colonization of occupied Palestine.

The Israeli police said Al-Aqsa would be open to the colonizers from 7:00 to 11:00 in the morning and from 1:30 to 2:30 in the afternoon.
