JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- An Israeli guard assaulted a student at the al-Aqsa mosque, an Islamic foundation associated with the site said.
The student was lightly injured, and evaluated at a clinic inside the compound, the Al-Aqsa Foundation said in a statement quoting onlookers as saying Israeli Jews had entered the area.
A student was studying the Quran with a group when Israeli police tried to disperse them and detain the student, the foundation said.
Male students expressed anger over the incident as the student was female, and clashed with police. Nasser Malhas was lightly injured in his back and taken to a clinic for treatment.
