Leave a comment

JERUSALEM, April 12, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers, who stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque yards under Israeli police protection, assaulted on Saturday a number of Palestinian female worshipers, according to witnesses.

Witnesses said that Palestinian worshippers were attacked by settlers after attempting to fend off the former’s attempts to tour the yards of the Mosque. Settlers assaulted a number of women carrying copies of the Quran and used foul language against them.

Israeli police imposes restrictions on Palestinian worshipers’ entry, particularly women and youth.  Police retains their identity cards prior to their entry in anticipation of any clashes and to be able to detain those who might be involved.

The city of Jerusalem has been a scene of ongoing violent and deadly incidents which skyrocketed following Israeli settlers’ murder of 17-year-old Palestinian teenager Mohammad Abu Khdeir last July who was found torched to death in a wood in Jerusalem. Since then, violent incidents caused loss of lives at both Palestinian and Israeli sides.
