Hundreds of Palestinians took to the streets in the occupied West Bank cities of Ramallah, Nablus, Al-Bireh, Qalandia, and other cities to show solidarity with Al-Aqsa against Israel’s brutal assault on the Muslim holy site.

The Israeli occupation forces cracked down brutally on the gathering which arrived in Qalandia Checkpoint, while the Palestinian Authority (PA) quashed the gathering that took place in Ramallah.

In Israel, Arab citizens took to the streets of several Arab cities, including Haifa, Al Ramla, and Lod.

Extremist Jewish settlers attacked the rallies.

A Palestinian protester was killed in Lod as a result of the Israeli attacks.
