Israeli Official: Israeli Raids at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque Prompt Rocket Fire from Lebanon and Gaza

M.Y | DOP -

Israeli officials reported a barrage of rockets being launched from Lebanon into the occupied lands on Thursday, sparking fears that the conflict may become more intense.

It appears that missiles were fired at Israeli settlements in northern occupied Palestine as a reaction to the Israeli offenses against the A-Aqsa holy mosque and the oppression of its worshipers.

The Israeli military reported that a decision about how to respond would be made following a Security Cabinet meeting and a review of the situation.

The Israeli emergency medical service reported that one Israeli settler sustained shrapnel wounds and another person was hurt while fleeing to a safe space.

Over the past two nights, Israeli occupation forces have used overwhelming force against Muslim worshippers as they attempted to pray in Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. As reported by the Palestinian Red Crescent, six Palestinians were wounded in the assault yesterday.

Overnight on Tuesday, Israeli occupation forces forcefully stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, leading to numerous Palestinians being hurt and a large number of them being detained including women. The raid has been strongly disapproved by Arab and non-Arab countries.

Since Netanyahu formed a far-right and ultra-nationalist coalition last year, the area has seen a rise in tension. The Israeli police is now managed by Itamar Ben-Gvir, one of the most extreme members of Netanyahu’s cabinet, who had previously been found guilty of promoting racism and backing a terror group.
