Israeli forces injure 30 Palestinians in al-Aqsa Mosque

Editor’s Note: You will not find a story like this on any mainstream news channel. But if the roles were reversed, with Palestinians injuring Israeli Jews within a Synagogue complex, this would be among the biggest news stories in the world.

Israeli forces have shot and wounded at least 30 Palestinians in the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem al-Quds.

Local sources say clashes erupted in the mosque compound when Israeli settlers entered the holy site. Witnesses say Israeli troops raided the mosque to protect the settlers. They say the forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the worshipers.

The al-Aqsa mosque has been the scene of clashes in recent months following frequent visits of settlers and Israeli officials to the holy site. More clashes are expected as Israeli lawmakers are debating to allow Jews into the compound.
