Many Israeli soldiers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday, firing rubber-shells, tear gas, and bombs on Palestinian worshipers on the 28th of Ramadan.
Israeli helicopters were seen flying over the platform.
Many Palestinians have been injured, according to the Red Crescent Palestinian Authority, adding that their medical teams were barred from reaching the area.
Israeli troops entered through the Mughgabi gate while thousands of Jews were waiting outside before joining the “Day of Jerusalem”, marking the 1967 Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem.
Sources from Waqf Islamic Affairs say most of the injured were hit by a rubber band that was handed over to worshipers.
Crisis has spread to Jerusalem, the occupied West Bank, and the Gaza Strip during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, amid growing anger over forced evictions from Palestinian families in Sheikh Jarrah – a Palestinian state that is illegal for Jews.

Israeli police have banned residents of Al Aqsa
Israeli police have banned Jewish nationals from accessing the Al Aqsa Mosque in what Israel calls Jerusalem Day.
The idea came just hours after the agreement was made by patriots of Israel through the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, an annual event known as a demonstration of the Jewish royal uprisings in the city.
Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck.
