Israeli Forces Shoot Journalists, Child at Al-Aqsa

Israeli police today shot two journalists and a child as they cracked down on a rally at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Local sources told WAFA that Israeli forces barged their way into the mosque compound and violently quelled a Palestinian protest in support of the Prophet Muhammad, which had been called in response to the insults directed at him during a Jewish settler march through occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday.

Policemen fire rubber-coated steel bullets at the protestors, hitting Middle East Eye (MEE) journalist Latifeh Abdelatif in the knee besides wounding MEE contributor Sondus Eweis and a child. The casualties were hospitalized.
