Israeli police fire tear gas at Palestinians at Al-Aqsa

Open this

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said that they engaged in a shoot-out with an armed Palestinian who crossed into Israeli territory from Gaza on Sunday morning.

Israeli police stepped in to disperse Palestinians gathered at Jerusalem's Temple Mount/Noble Sanctuary site at the start of the Muslim festival of Eid Al-Adha on Sunday, with several people injured in the confrontations.

Earlier on August 1, a Palestinian seeking to avenge his brother's death by Israeli fire entered Israel from Gaza and opened fire on soldiers, the army said.

No casualties have been reported on the Israeli side, while the military later stated that the Palestinian had been killed.

"I greet Muslims and Druze on the holy feast of Eid al-Adha and I condemn the storming of al-Aqsa and the beating of worshipers", Bassil said in a tweet. Jews were also observing the Ninth of Av on Sunday, a day of fasting and mourning for the destruction of the two Biblical temples that stood at the site in antiquity. Sufian al-Qudah, a spokesman for the Jordanian Foreign Ministry, said Amman holds Israel completely responsible for the violence.

The Palestinian health ministry in Gaza identified the dead man as 26-year-old Marwan Nasser. The army says a tank also targeted a nearby military post operated by the Islamic militant group Hamas.

Gaza is ruled by the Islamist group Hamas, which has fought three wars with Israel over the past decade.

Israeli police barred entry to the compound to Jewish visitors on Sunday before clashes erupted.

Palestinian Red Crescent, meanwhile, said that 37 Palestinian were injured after Israeli forces attacked the worshippers with rubber bullets, teargas and truncheons. It was not clear if he was a member of an armed group, and no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
