Two Palestinians were bruised, and two others were arrested, during the Israeli occupation forces’ attack on worshipers arriving to perform the noon prayer at Al-Aqsa Mosque at the Lions Gate.

Eyewitnesses said that the occupation forces attacked the worshipers and beat them, as a result of which two of them were bruised, and two others were arrested amidst tightening at the doors of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque since the morning hours.

In the same context, the Supreme Presidential Committee for Churches Affairs in Palestine called on the churches of the world and all their parishioners to condemn the violations of the Israeli occupation of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the worshipers in it, and depriving them of their guaranteed right to perform their prayers freely and peacefully, as stipulated in the relevant international covenants.

The committee said, in a statement on the 52nd anniversary of the crime of burning Al-Aqsa Mosque perpetrated by the extremist settler terrorist Michael Dennis, which falls on Saturday, that "the extremist ideology and ideology that prompted this criminal to do his act is still present and nourishes the hardened Jewish extremists supported by the Jews." An extremist right-wing government to achieve their goal of destroying and sabotaging Al-Aqsa Mosque and building the so-called temple in its place.

The committee added in its statement that "Palestinian cohesion and solidarity, Islamic and Christian, in Palestine in general and in the city of Jerusalem in particular, was and still is a safety valve in defending Islamic-Christian sanctities in the face of Israeli crimes and violations, settlers' incursions into Al-Aqsa Mosque and attempts to change the existing legal, historical and religious situation."
