Israeli police enter compound firing rubber bullets and stun grenades in newest raid on the Muslim holy website.
Israeli forces have entered the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem and injured roughly 40 Palestinians, together with three journalists.
The recent raid befell on Friday morning, with Palestinians throwing stones on the Israeli police, who have been wearing full riot gear and entered the compound firing rubber bullets and stun grenades, in line with journalists on the scene.
The holy website has been the centre of days of violence amid heightened tensions following a sequence of assaults inside Israel and police raids within the West Financial institution, which Israel is illegally occupying.
Tens of hundreds of Muslims are anticipated at Al-Aqsa later within the day for Friday prayers.
Visits by Jewish teams have been suspended from Friday for the final 10 days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
This 12 months, the fasting month has coincided with the Jewish Passover and main Christian holidays, with tens of hundreds of individuals from all three faiths flocking to Jerusalem’s Previous Metropolis.
