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

The Palestine Red Crescent Society said in a statement that it dealt with 17 injuries during the occupation forces' attacks on those present near Bab al-Asbat, one of the gates of Aqsa Mosque, five of whom were hospitalized.

Additionally, they arrested three young men amid heavy firing of sound and tear gas grenades, in an attempt to expel Palestinians from Aqsa’s courtyards in preparation for the settlers' incursions.

Notably, this is the second time the Israeli Occupation stormed al-Aqsa in the past 48 hours.
