Israeli Occupation Forces attack the worshippers stationed in the Al-Qibli prayer hall in Al-Aqsa Mosque and threaten to arrest women if they do not leave the holy site.
On Sunday evening, Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) renewed their aggression against the Al-Aqsa mosque’s Al-Qibli Prayer Hall. According to Palestinian media, the IOF attempted to forcibly expel worshippers from the hall.
The IOF also threatened to arrested the women if they did not leave the mosque. According to local media, the detainees refused to surrender to Israeli threats and resisted expulsion.
Yesterday as well, the IOF attempted to expel Palestinians stationed in the Al-Qibli prayer hall.
However, yesterday, the Palestinians stationed inside the hall locked the doors from the inside and prevented the IOF from entering.
Witnesses indicated, according to Anadolu Agency, that the IOF had cut off power to the hall and attempted to break in and force the stationed worshippers out of the area.
It is also worth noting that on April 1, Al Mayadeen‘s correspondent in occupied Al-Quds reported that the IOF opened fire on a Palestinian near Bab Al-Silsila in Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Our correspondent cited witnesses as saying that Mohammad Al-Osaibi, 26, was martyred at the hands of the Israeli forces.
At the time of the attack, the IOF closed the doors of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Old City in Al-Quds, and assaulted Palestinian worshippers as they were leaving the Mosque through Bab Al-Qataneen.
