Israeli Settler Violence against Palestinian civilians and property
On Monday, 30 September 2019, hundreds of Israeli settlers raided al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem’s Old City to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Israeli forces arrested a Palestinian young man and an elderly woman while present in al-Asbat Gate area. The Islamic Endowments (Awqaf) Department stated that around 416 settlers, including the Israeli Minister of Agriculture, Uri Ariel, and dozens of rabbis, raided al-Aqsa Mosque on 29 and 30 September 2019 to celebrate the Jewish New Year and perform prayers in al-Rahma, al-Qataneen and al-Selselah Gates, under Israeli forces and intelligence officers protection. The Islamic Endowments Department added that the Israeli forces were deployed in the al-Aqsa Mosque yards and gates, where they took photos of Palestinian worshipers.
Apparently, Jews peacefully walking around and praying is considered a violation of human rights to this respected Palestinian NGO.
Preventing Jews from practicing their religion in their most sacred site would be a fulfillment of human rights, it seems.
It’s 1984 in the territories every day.
Similarly, Masralarabia reported “Shocking figures reveal the brutality of the occupation .. 2408 settlers stormed the Aqsa in September.”
