Palestinian killed, 5 injured in Jerusalem clashes with IOF


A Palestinian youth was killed and five others sustained injuries on Tuesday evening in violent clashes with the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) in Occupied Jerusalem.
20-year-old ex-prisoner Ali Atef Sheyoukhi was shot and killed by Israeli live bullet fire in Silwan town.
The casualty sustained critical wounds in his basin and was left bleeding to death after ambulance crews could not reach the scene due to the tight Israeli blockade imposed on Occupied Jerusalem.
Violent clashes reportedly burst out in Silwan town, to the south of the al-Aqsa Mosque, after the IOF rolled into the area and attacked the Palestinian protestors with randomly shot spates of bullet fire and teargas canisters.
The Israeli occupation police summoned reinforcement and cordoned off Palestinian neighborhoods in Silwan before they cracked down on the Palestinian inhabitants.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said another Palestinian youngster was treated for bullet wounds inflicted on his eye.
They added that the Israeli forces stood as stumbling blocks on their way and subjected them to exhaustive inspection for eight times.
A few hours earlier, four Palestinian youngsters were left injured and three others were kidnapped by the IOF during clashes in al-Ram and Silwan, in northern Occupied Jerusalem.
The Palestinian protestors hurled stones at an Israeli bus and a train.
The IOF attacked the Palestinian protestors and journalists with live rounds, leaving at least four among them injured.
The Red Crescent said four Palestinians were treated for bullet injuries sustained in al-Ram clashes.
A Palestinian car went up in flames in the clash scene.
Ongoing clashes have rocked al-Ram since Sunday following an anti-occupation shooting attack carried out by the Palestinian protestor Musbeh Abu Sbeih in Jerusalem’s neighborhood of Sheikh Jarah.
Meanwhile, a manhunt has been launched by the Israeli occupation troops to chase Palestinians who allegedly threw stones at Jerusalem’s light rail.

Temple Mount temporarily closed to Jewish visitors after clashes with police

The Temple Mount was temporarily closed to Jewish visitors on Wednesday at the order of Jerusalem District Commander Yoram Halevy after Jews broke visitation rules at the holy site, police said. The Jewish visitors were expelled from the compound for bringing sacred books to the Mount and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was cautioned, another took out a holy book, and the group was expelled. Meanwhile, renewed clashes erupted between protesters and Israeli security forces near the Lion's Gate in the Old City, where police used stun grenades against the demonstrators. A regular dynamic has developed involving clashes between Palestinians and Israel Police over the past several days near the Lion's Gate. Dozens of Palestinians are present at the site on a regular basis, urging devotion to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount and condemning Israel. During Muslim prayer times, particularly the midday and nighttime prayers, hundreds and sometimes even thousands have been gathering there.

There have been outbreaks of violence during these periods, including stone-throwing or physical confrontations with the police. In most of these incidents, the police have been using stun grenades and sponge-tipped bullets to disperse the crowds. In a number of cases, journalists in the area have also suffered violence at the hands of the police. On Tuesday, Hassan Shaalan, a reporter for the Ynet news website, was struck by a policeman even after he identified himself as a member of the press. A group of Jerusalem-based journalists released a statement of condemnation over the incident and called on the police to permit reporters to do their jobs. The Jerusalem Police responded: "This involved an incident that took place in the course of violent disturbances of the peace that occurred in Jerusalem while the police were acting to remove the demonstrators from the street after some of them refused to vacate. The forces working on the scene are under constant threat to their lives.
