Israeli occupation forces wounded 13 Palestinians on Wednesday night near Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, including girl and journalist.

Palestinian sources said that the Israeli occupation forces brutally raided the Palestinian protesters, who have been near the gates of Al-Aqsa Mosque for 11 days.

The Israeli crackdown on the protesters began when the Isha Prayer started as the protesters performed the prayer inside and outside the walls of the Old City.

In an attempt to disperse the protest, the Israeli soldiers started beating thousands of worshipers and chasing them, using their electric batons and tear gas.

“Most of the time, they fired steel-coated with rubber bullets and sometimes they fired live bullets,” one of the protesters said in a video showing the Israeli soldiers attacking worshipers.

Palestinian have been protesting against the Israel measures taken against Al-Aqsa Mosque on July 14, including the placement of electronic metal detectors, which were replaced on Tuesday with high-quality and advanced CCTV cameras.

On Tuesday, the Palestinian Red Crescent said that its staff had dealt with more than 1,100 Palestinian cases since July 14, including four martyrs and several others in critical conditions.

In last night’s crackdown, the Red Crescent said that a journalist and 13-year-old girl were among the wounded treated by its staff.
