Clashes at al-Aqsa compound gate

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Clashes erupted between Palestinians and Israeli forces Tuesday at one of the al-Aqsa mosque gates after Israeli forces prevented worshipers from entering.

The imam of the mosque told Ma’an that Israeli forces prevented worshipers and summer camp children from entering the compound, keeping them at the gates and obligating them to hand in their ID cards in order to enter.

Omar Keswani added that Israeli forces pepper-sprayed people who were at the gates.
