Last month worshippers at Al-Aqsa were violently attacked 7 times in 10 days by Israeli forces

 Al-Aqsa mosque was attacked 7 times in the space of 10 days last month, and these attacks have continued since.

On Friday 15th April, in the middle of the holy month of Ramadan, Israeli Occupation Forces brutally assaulted Palestinian worshippers including women, children and the elderly. They used tear gas, sound grenades and steel-coated rubber bullets. Journalists and medics were also violently assaulted, and worshippers were interrupted during prayer to be forcibly removed.

While Palestinians were being barred and attacked, Israeli Occupation Forces facilitated over 700 illegal Israeli settlers to roam freely around Al-Aqsa. These Israeli settlers want to build a sacred site on Al-Aqsa, and their visits are known as incursions.

Over the last few years, the number of incursions at Al-Aqsa and attacks on Palestinian worshippers have rapidly increased, particularly around the holy month of Ramadan.

These attacks on Al-Aqsa and Palestinian worshippers have continued into May. If this was happening at any other holy site, the world would be in uproar! Instead global governments are silent.

We demand these brutal and illegal actions be condemned. Email your MP now to publicly condemn these attacks and call for sanctions on Israel. (Use the action tab above)
