A young Jerusalemite named Abada Jamjoom and a 65-year-old woman from the “Taha” family suffered injuries in separate settler attacks near Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque on Friday evening.
Sources report that Abada Jamjoom was stabbed by a settler while he was working in Jerusalem. He was later transported to the hospital, and his condition is stable.
In a related incident, reports indicated that the woman suffered injuries to her hand and shoulder from a bullet’s shrapnel while in the vicinity of the Qibli Mosque within the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Furthermore, Israeli occupation forces kidnapped the woman for questioning at the “Beit Eliyahu” police station near the As-silsila Gate, failing to offer her any medical assistance.
Local sources speculate that the origin of the shrapnel might have been one of the Israeli settlers’ residences in the Moroccan Gate neighborhood.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces prevented worshipers from exiting through the Qatanin Gate, one of Al-Aqsa Mosque’s gates, to secure the settlers and enable them to perform their Talmudic rituals.
These restrictions and violations coincide with extremist groups’ preparations for the largest settler gathering to participate in the invasion of Al-Aqsa Mosque, taking advantage of the Jewish holiday season set to begin in mid-September.
