110 Palestinians, including a number of elderly men and women, were treated for injuries after Israeli troops attacked worshipers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. The wounded include two Directors of the Board for Islamic Endowments, several journalists, and paramedics who arrived on the scene to treat the wounded.
The Friday noon prayer was underway when Israeli forces raided the Mosque compound, firing rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and tear gas. Palestinian youth responded by throwing stones. Israeli troops then attempted to force all of the worshipers out of the Mosque compound.
