JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police officers assaulted a Palestinian man from Jerusalem on Thursday morning after he tried to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, witnesses said.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that Israeli police officers stationed at the Cotton Merchants' Gate engaged in a heated argument with 42-year-old Khalil Suwwa as he was trying to enter the compound, where he studies Islamic law.

They added that the police officers "brutally attacked" Suwwa during the argument, and the man fainted after sustaining bruises all over his body.

The witnesses added that Israeli police officers did not allow medics to offer first aid to Suwwan, and after he was evacuated to a clinic inside the Al-Aqsa compound Israeli officers stormed the compound and attempted to detain him.

Suwwan was eventually evacuated to a hospital but only after the Israeli officers seized his identity card, the witnesses added.

An Israeli police spokesperson did not have any information regarding the incident.

What? Palestinians DARE to try to enter a mosque when the Master Race has forbidden it? One would think they had basic human rights or something.
