On Saturday, Israeli forces cracked down on protests marking the 52nd anniversary of the burning of Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, injuring 41 protestors by live ammunition, including 15 children.
The protest was also organized to draw attention to the 14-year-old blockade that Israel has imposed on Gaza since 2007 and Israel’s obstruction of Gaza reconstruction.
