 163 Palestinians, Six Israeli Police Officers Injured In Jerusalem Clashes

At least 163 Palestinians and six Israeli police officers have been hurt in clashes in Jerusalem.

Most were injured at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, where Israeli Police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades as Palestinians threw stones and bottles.

Israeli Police said they had used force to restore order due to the rioting of thousands of worshippers after evening prayers.

The Red Crescent has opened a field hospital to treat the wounded.

Tensions have been rising over the potential eviction of Palestinians from land claimed by Jewish settlers.

The Al-Aqsa mosque complex in Jerusalem’s Old City is one of Islam’s most revered locations, but its location is also the holiest site in Judaism, known as the Temple Mount.

The site is a frequent flashpoint for violence, which unfolded again on Friday night, May 14, 2021, after thousands had gathered to observe the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
