Israeli forces physically assaulted three worshippers near the Bab as-Silsila, one of the main entrances to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Israeli occupation forces brutally attacked Palestinian worshippers on Sunday morning at the Bab as-Silsila, one of the main entrances to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

According to WAFA, Israeli forces physically assaulted and beat up three worshippers, including an elderly man and an elderly woman, near the Chain Gate.

This violent assault occurred after the three worshippers had peacefully protested against an illegal Jewish settler who blew a horn at the entrance to the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The incident came as Israeli occupation forces intensified their presence around the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem, hindering Muslim worshippers from accessing the mosque’s courtyards.
