Qalqiliya, September 23 (QNA) - A child was wounded by live ammunition, and a number of Palestinians were wounded by rubber-coated metal bullets today, during clashes with Israeli occupation forces in Kafr Qaddoum village, east of Qalqilya governorate in the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian sources reported that the confrontations erupted after the start of the weekly peaceful march in Kafr Qaddoum, which led to the injury of a 13-year-old child with live bullets in the thigh, 10 civilians with rubber -coated bullets, and suffocation of others with tear gas.
In this context, Israeli occupation forces arrested two boys while they were leaving the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) reported that Israeli occupation forces arrested two boys - whose identities were not known - after they performed Friday prayers, and took them to one of its centers in occupied Jerusalem.
Tens of thousands of worshipers performed Friday prayers in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, despite the restrictions imposed by the Israeli occupation authorities in the vicinity of the Old City and the Blessed Mosque.
The Department of Islamic Endowments reported that 50,000 worshipers from the West Bank, including Jerusalem, and within the 1948 lands, performed Friday prayers in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Israeli occupation forces intensified their deployment in the city's streets and the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque, stationed at its gates, stopped the worshipers and checked their personal identities, while allowing dozens of settlers to perform provocative dances in the Bab al-Rahma cemetery adjacent to the mosque from the eastern side.
Many calls were issued from Jerusalem authorities for travel and performance of prayers in Al-Aqsa Mosque today, to thwart the settlers plans to intensify incursions into the mosque, by imposing temporal and spatial division. (QNA)
