Israel Attacks Al-Aqsa Mosque Worshippers, Attempting To Provoke Violence With Gaza

This Last Sunday Israeli Occupation forces violently stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, assaulting worshippers and risking an escalation with the Gaza Strip, similar to what happened back in May.

Heavily armed Israeli occupation police forces, making way for illegal settler extremists to storm the site, violently removed Palestinian worshippers from the al-Aqsa mosque compound. The Israeli forces shot tear gas and rubber bullets, as well as other munitions, at elderly worshippers during prayer and proceeded to violently assault unarmed women.

The al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site for Muslims, who were praying there just days before their religious holiday of Eid al-Adha. Ultimately, 1540 illegal Israeli settlers forced their way into the site, where mosques had just been damaged by the fire power of Israeli armed forces. In addition to this, Israel set up barriers around the old city of Jerusalem and prevented Palestinians from entering, later gassing, assaulting and arresting protesters.

The attack, which could be described as the largest Islamophobic attack in the past months, went virtually unreported, however, with little Western media attention coming its way at all. This has been the case since Israel’s violation of the May 21 ceasefire agreement with Gaza, that Western media has all but ignored it, despite Gaza having been bombarded four times. The difference between now and May? Gaza’s armed groups have not been firing rockets at Israel and Palestinians have not reacted violently to Israeli provocations.
