30 injured in pro-Aqsa marches on Gaza border areas

21 July 2017 21:06


Huge demonstrations were launched after Friday prayer on the eastern borders of the Gaza Strip in rejection of the latest Israeli measures imposed on al-Aqsa Mosque.

Nearly 30 Gazans, including 6 paramedics, were injured after the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked the demonstrators with live bullets and tear gas canisters.

Spokesman of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qedra, said that two ambulances were partially damaged after they were deliberately targeted by the IOF.

Deputy head of the Hamas Political Bureau in Gaza, Khalil al-Hayya, demanded in a speech ending security coordination between the Palestinian Authority and Israel.

Hayya urged the closure of the Israeli embassies in Arab countries in response to the Israeli practices against al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Hamas leader, Hammad al-Raqeb, called on the Muslim masses to assume their duties toward their third holiest site, adding, in a message to the Israeli occupation, that al-Aqsa is a “red line”.

For his part, the leader of the Islamic Jihad Movement, Darweesh al-Gharabli, affirmed that the Palestinian resistance factions will not remain silent vis-à-vis the ongoing Israeli violations at the Aqsa Mosque.

Protests will continue throughout the day in support of al-Aqsa Mosque and the Jerusalemite worshipers who refuse to enter the Mosque via the metal detectors newly erected at its entrances.
