Sunday morning, a number of Palestinians were injured and many were arrested, while the Israeli Occupation Forces stormed the courtyards of the blessed Aqsa Mosque.

This came as fresh tension arose as the Jewish festival of Passover overlapped with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan which caused the forces to secure the mass incursions of Jewish extremist settlers.
