Israeli Police storm Al-Aqsa Mosque despite the ceasefire

Despite the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Palestinian armed groups, Israeli Police stormed the Al-Aqsa Masjid and fired tear gas at the Palestinians.

Around 20 persons were injured, the Palestinian Red Crescent mentioned in a statement.

“They were singing and chanting when a contingent of the Israeli police [stationed] next to the compound came into the compound and started using crowd control measures that they use all the time, including stun grenades, smoke bombs and tear gas,” Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan, reporting from occupied East Jerusalem, said.
