Palestine mosque news: Why did Israeli police storm the Al-Aqsa Mosque? | World | News


During clashes outside the Old City Walls, footage showed a white car being pelted with stones before it crashed into a bollard and hit a Palestinian protester.

The shocking footage shows the downed man getting up and limping away while an armed Israeli police officer runs in to protect the driver, believed to be Israeli, who faced more rock-throwing.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Ofir Gendelman tweeted: “Extremist Palestinians planned well in advance to carry out riots today on the Temple Mount. What we see now is the result of that.”

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, however, accused “Israeli occupation forces” of conducting a “brutal raid” at al-Aqsa.
