Violent confrontations broke out on Monday evening when Israeli occupation forces stormed al-Isawiya village in Jerusalem with tension prevailing in the city after Israeli settlers have called for resuming break-ins into al-Aqsa Mosque.
Local sources said that Israeli occupation forces raided Obeid neighborhood in al-Isawiya and wreaked havoc on it, which sparked clashes with Palestinian residents with no injuries reported.
Extremist settler groups have called for taking advantage of the coronavirus lockdown and resuming their daily break-ins into al-Aqsa Mosque.
Sheikh Omar al-Kiswani, Imam of al-Aqsa Mosque, warned that if the Israeli occupation authorities opened the Mosque’s al-Maghariba Gate to Jewish settlers, the other gates would also be opened to dozens of thousands of Muslim worshipers.
“Israeli authorities would be held fully responsible for the repercussions of this dangerous move,”
