Israeli occupation police beat and abducted, on Sunday morning, a Palestinian citizen after he was beaten by Jewish settlers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.

An eyewitness said, according to Days of Palestine, that Jewish Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian man while he was entering through the Lion’s Gate.

Then, Israeli police interfered and, instead of sorting out the situation, they beat him, handcuffed and detained him.

Meanwhile, Palestinian sources counted 64 illegal settlers storming Al-Aqsa Mosque in the morning.

According to the sources, the settlers were accompanied by heavy security, and stormed the holy site through Al-Maghrabeh Gate.

On Saturday, Israeli occupation forces attacked a Palestinian citizen in the West Bank city of Al-Khalil (Hebron), and detained him.

Israeli authorities claimed he had a knife, but Palestinian eyewitnesses reiterated that he did not, and that the knife exposed by Israeli media is not his, noting that it had been previously exposed by Israeli mass media claiming it belonged to a Palestinian “terrorist” whom they murdered.
