Palestinian Territory, Occupied, Jerusalem
June 27, 2016 at 14:29 GMT +00:00 · Published

Israeli security forces reportedly clashed with worshippers for a second day in a row at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Monday. Muslim protesters have been rallying against Israelis and foreign tourists being allowed to enter the site during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

At least seven Palestinians were injured in clashes at the site a day earlier after security forces reportedly deployed rubber bullets to disperse the crowd. According to reports, at least four Palestinian youths were detained following the altercations.

The clashes started when Israeli police forces opened a gate to allow Israelis and foreign tourists to use the site, despite Muslim worshippers contesting the access to outsiders during the last 10 days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
