Israeli forces on dawn Friday stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem and injured 42 Palestinian worshippers, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

WAFA correspondent said that heavily-armed police stormed the mosque compound via the heavily-guarded Bab al-Maghariba Gate, occupied the rooftops of several buildings, and fired rubber-coated steel bullets, stun grenades and tear gas canisters towards the worshippers, injuring 42.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said that its medics provided treatment to 42 people, mostly with upper-body injuries, and transferred 22 of them to al-Makassed Hospital. It confirmed that police initially denied medics access to the compound and brutally assaulted a medic, inflicting bruises across his body.

Isreali forces have stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque compound every Friday since the beginning of Ramadan.

Al-Aqsa is located in East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories that have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
