Israeli forces assault elderly man in Aqsa compound

May 27, 2014 7:59 P.M. (Updated: May 27, 2014 8:00 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces assaulted an elderly Palestinian man in the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound on Tuesday, causing injuries to his eye, witnesses said.

Israeli forces violently assaulted Abu Hani Sharif, 70, after asking him to stop taking pictures in the compound. Israeli officers surrounded Sharif and assaulting him before attempting to make an arrest.

Dozens of Palestinian worshipers intervened and managed to escort the elderly man away from the officers.

His wife fainted while witnessing the assault.
