Israeli Military Attacks

By Helen WaltersPublished 6 months ago 4 min read

In yet another display of terrorism, the Israeli forces launched an attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound before sunrise, where they desecrated the holy site, attacked worshipers with stun grenades, tear gas, and pushed them around. The extremist Jewish settlers were also allowed to enter the holy site within the siege. As a result of this violence, more than 60 Palestinians, including women, were injured, and over 400 Palestinians, including women, were arrested.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan have condemned the Israeli attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque and called for an emergency meeting of the Arab League. The Arab League has also strongly condemned the Israeli forces' attack on the worshipers.

According to international news agencies, Israeli police officers once again violated the sanctity of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by entering the mosque compound and targeting worshipers with extreme violence. The police officers threw stun grenades and tear gas at worshipers and caused injuries to more than 60 worshipers, including women. Several worshipers were also affected by the gas.

After the Israeli police attack, hundreds of Palestinian men and women rushed to Al-Aqsa Mosque to protest against the Israeli forces' violence, in response to Hamas's call for action against the Israeli aggression.

Following the attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, tensions in the region are once again on the rise. The mosque is one of the most sacred sites in Islam and is located in East Jerusalem, which is currently occupied by Israel. The attack has been condemned by several countries, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan, who have called for an emergency meeting of the Arab League.

The Arab League has issued a statement condemning the attack and calling for the international community to take action to protect the Palestinian people. They have also urged the United Nations to intervene and take steps to ensure that Israel complies with international law and respects the rights of the Palestinian people.

The attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque is just the latest in a series of actions by the Israeli government that have been seen as provocative by the Palestinian people. There have been ongoing protests in the region over the past few weeks, as Palestinians have voiced their anger at the Israeli government's plans to evict several families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem.

The Israeli government has defended its actions, stating that the evictions are legal and necessary to maintain order in the area. However, the evictions have been widely condemned by the international community, with many countries, including the United States, calling for Israel to halt the evictions.

The situation in the region remains tense, with both sides accusing each other of provocation and aggression. The attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque has only served to increase tensions and raise the stakes in an already volatile situation. It remains to be seen what steps will be taken by the international community to address the situation and prevent further violence in the region.
