IMEMC & Agencies: Palestinian medical sources reported that six Palestinians, including an elderly man, have been injured, and one reporter has been kidnapped, after Israeli soldiers attacked Muslim worshipers who tried to enter the Al-Aqsa mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, to participate on Friday prayers.


The Maan News Agency reported that the Israeli army and police prevented Palestinian men who are 48 years old or less from entering the mosque.


Medical sources reported that resident Jamal Kabajna, 54, suffered various cuts and bruises in his head, while his son Mohammad, 18, suffered various cuts and bruises in addition to fractures in his left arm and right leg; both were moved to a local Palestinian hospital.


Also, resident Mahmoud Abed Abu Nee’, 81, suffered a fracture in his foot and a fracture in his pelvis after a number of soldiers pushed him around and threw him onto the ground.


Three more Palestinians were injured after Israeli policemen attacked them with batons near one of the gates of the Al-Aqsa mosque.


Waleed Feerawy, a medic working for the Palestinian Medical Relief, stated that three Palestinians have been injured after being violently attacked by the police, and that one of them lost a finger after a police barrier fell on his hand.


Another Palestinian suffered a dislocated knee after being beaten by the army, while another resident was injured in his chest; all were hospitalized for treatment.

Furthermore, a cameraman identified as Mohammad Al-Fateh Abu Sneina, 22, was kidnaped and was moved to an interrogation facility.


Dozens of Policemen have been deployed in different parts of occupied Jerusalem, especially the Old City and the Al-Aqsa Mosque area, stopped and interrogated dozens of Palestinian youths while inspecting their ID cards, and prevented all Palestinian below the age of 50 from entering the mosque.


Thousands of Palestinians performed Friday prayers in the streets of the Old City, especially near Bab Al-Amoud, Wad Al-Joz, and several other areas, and took pictures of dozens of residents.
