Israel police storm al Aqsa Mosque following Gaza ceasefire

Within hours after a ceasefire is called with Gaza, Israeli security forces raided the al Aqsa mosque after Friday prayers, claiming they were responding to stone-throwing. Meanwhile, Gaza digs out of the rubble left after 11 days of Israeli airstrikes.

Israeli security forces used stun grenades and rubber bullets against Palestinians outside the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, where thousands of worshipers had been attending Friday prayers, puncturing a half-day of calm brought on by a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

A CNN journalist at the mosque compound said dozens of Israeli officers hit journalists with batons and tried to point rifles at them, calling them “liars” when they showed them their press cards.

The officers moved on to the compound as thousands of worshipers chanted in solidarity with Gaza and with Palestinian residents of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, where some Palestinian families are facing eviction.
