Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Israeli Soldiers Raid Al-Aqsa Mosque Again, Firing Tear Gas and Rubber-Coated Bullets

HeadlineApr 21, 2022

In occupied East Jerusalem, at least 20 Palestinians were injured today as Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades, rubber bullets and pepper spray to clear worshipers from the Al-Aqsa Mosque after dawn prayers. This follows a similar crackdown last weekend that saw hundreds of Palestinians arrested and over 150 injured. On Wednesday evening, Israeli police in Jerusalem blocked a march of more than 1,000 Israeli ultranationalist protesters from reaching the Old City’s Muslim Quarter, as many waved Israeli flags and shouted, “Death to Arabs.”
