It is a shame that Israeli apartheid against Palestinians continues. Atrocious attack on peaceful praying Muslims is given the usual media spin of ‘clashes’. My brothers don’t lose hope. Time is near when International Politics will be based on morality & not on vested interests.

At least 205 Palestinians were injured in the clashes. They were hit by rubber bullets and stun grenades.
Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the Arab Israel war in 1967, then annexed the entire city in 1980 and this move was never recognized by the international community.
