More than 200 Palestinian worshippers have been injured in clashes with Israeli police at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and elsewhere in occupied East Jerusalem, as weeks-long tensions between Israel and the Palestinians over Jerusalem soared again.
The violence erupted on Friday near the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and the Damascus Gate. The clashes also left at least six Israeli police officers injured.
“205 Palestinians have been injured,” the Red Crescent said.
The organization set up a field hospital in the area to provide the injured people with medical assistance.
During the protests, an Israeli police officer assaulted a cameraman of RT’s global multimedia agency Ruptly. The video issued by Ruptly shows the officer threatening to break the camera and then striking it from the journalist’s hands.
Following the incident, Ruptly suspended the live broadcast but resumed it soon.
The unrest in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem started a week ago over the plans of the Israeli authorities to resettle 28 Palestinian families from the area.

“No need of nuclear weapons once Kashmir issue is resolved” Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan
Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is simply a deterrent to protect the country, and there will no longer be any need for it once the Kashmir issue is resolved, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said as he asserted that if the Americans have the resolve and the will, the problem can be sorted out.
“I don’t know where they’ve come up with this. Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is simply a deterrent, to protect ourselves,” Prime Minister Khan said during an interview with the news program Axios on HBO, which was reported by Dawn online. Khan said that he was “not sure” whether it was growing. “As far as I know, it’s not an offensive thing. Any country which has a neighbor seven times its size would be worried.
“I always have been. We’ve had three wars against India, and ever since we have had a nuclear deterrent, there has been no war between the two countries. We’ve had border skirmishes, but we’ve never faced battle. The moment there is a settlement in Kashmir, the two neighbors would live as civilized people. We will not need to have nuclear deterrents”, Khan said.
This year, Pakistan has 165 nuclear warheads, and it appears to be expanding its nuclear arsenals, a study by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
