Palestinian sources stated that Israeli forces attacks left some 50 Palestinians injured as IOF stormed Al-Qibli Prayer Hall in Al-Aqsa Mosque, attacked worshipers, and targeted them with tear gas canisters.

Israeli forces arrested between 400-500 Palestinian men in last night’s brutal raid in Al-Aqsa Mosque which continued until Wednesday morning, according to the Palestinian Commission of Detainees’ Affairs.

Arab and foreign states including Jordan, Qatar, Türkiye, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt slammed Israel’s brutal assault on Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque.

States said they were following with concern developments at Al-Aqsa Mosque and called on the Israeli government to stop the attacks that might escalate the tensions in Al-Aqsa mosque.

Palestinian Resistance factions and National parties stated that the Palestinian resistance as well as the Palestinian people will strongly respond to the Israeli crime of assaulting the Al-Aqsa mosque and suppressing worshipers inside.

Five rockets were intercepted by the Israeli aerial defense system around the illegal Israeli settlements of Sderot and four others fell in uninhabited areas surrounding the besieged Gaza Strip.

Shortly following the Israeli attack on Al-Aqsa, Israeli occupation warplanes targeted several Palestinian sites in the central and southern Gaza Strip.

Palestinian media sources and activists reported that Israeli occupation warplanes launched several air attacks in the blockaded Gaza Strip amid rising tensions in the occupied Jerusalem.

No injuries were reported, according to the Palestinian Medical Sources. Nonetheless, over two million Palestinian woke up terrified to the sounds of heavy bombing, as Israeli fighter jets bombed the site with several missiles.
