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.”
