Occupied Jerusalem (In Palestine Today)- Israeli occupation forces stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, earlier this morning, detained three Palestinians.
The Israeli forces broke into the courtyards of the Mosque, detained three Palestinians, a father and his two sons, after assaulting them at the Al-Silsila Gate.
The father, Khamis Shehada, is an employee in the Islamic Endowment Department.
Israeli forces always attack and assault Palestinians at the courtyards of the Mosque with sound grenades, rubber bullets and pepper gas.
The forces also station at the gates of the mosque and detain dozens of Palestinian young men and boys, after assaulting them.
The forces simply allow Israeli settlers everyday to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards while assaulting and provoking Palestinian worshipers.
Israeli occupation authorities allow settler incursions to the mosque since 2003, despite repeated objections and warnings by the Palestinian religious authorities as the visits provoke worshippers of the mosque.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam which located in occupied Jerusalem.
