Israeli forces attacked several Palestinian worshippers and detained six of them on Tuesday evening, at Bab al-Rahma, inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem.
Moreover, three Israeli soldiers have been caught on camera while brutally attacking a Palestinian man at Hitta Gate, pushing him to the ground and kicking him in the head.

Tensions at the Al-Aqsa compound have been rising for some time, as increasing settler raids have been reported.
Jewish settlers raid Al-Aqsa Mosque on a daily basis and perform Talmudic rituals inside its yards, while the Israeli army limits access to Muslim worshippers during this time.
