Palestinians Injured as Israel Removes Restrictions at Al-Aqsa Mosque

HeadlineJul 28, 2017

Some of those hurt suffered broken bones. The crackdown came after Israeli authorities unexpectedly removed cameras and other security measures around the site—which is sacred to both Muslims and Jews—following weeks of intense protests by Palestinians demanding unfettered access to the site.
