JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Two young Palestinian men were hit by rubber-coated steel bullets to the neck fired at them by Israeli officers during clashes in the squares ofthe al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

A Ma’an reporter said Israeli forces imposed heavy restrictions on the main gates of the compound allowing only very few worshipers to access it after leaving their ID cards at Israeli checkpoints. Meanwhile, Israeli rightists were allowed to enter the compound via the Moroccan Gate heavily escorted by police officers and soldiers.

Witnesses said the “unwanted” visitors verbally assaulted Muslim worshipers who responded with stones thrown at the settlers. Israeli special forces deployed in the compound and surrounded worshipers who were inside the al-Aqsa mosque firing rubber-coated bullets at them. As a result, a young man was hit by a rubber-coated bullet to the neck.

Dr Ziad Srour, who works in a medical center inside the compound, said two young men received first aid after they were hurt during clashes with Israeli forces. One was hit in the front of his neck and the other was hit in the back of his neck.

Separately, Israeli police detained a 12-year-old boy from the squares of al-Aqsa. He was taken to Qishla police station near Jaffa Gate.

Israel should be given their own planet. they deserve one they can be secure in.I don't think they can be secure in this one,apparently they don't either.They don't understand human rights.They are merely our equals at best but they perceive themselves as more equal. That's how mere humans lose their perspective on human rights.Then human rights turn into human wrongs.Americans learn this very slowly,but at least we have a constitution we may learn to live up to.
