Jerusalem Mosque clashes leaving several hurt in Israel.

Tension has been rising over the potential eviction of Palestinians from land claimed by Jewish leaders.

Most were injured at the Al-Aqsa Mosque , where Israel police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades as Palestinians threw stones and bottles.

At least 163 Palestinians and six Israel Police officers have been hurt.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem old city is one of Islam’s most reverend locations. It’s location is also the holiest site in Judaism , known as ‘Temple Mount’.

The site is a frequent flashpoint for violence , just like Friday night after a thousand had gathered to observe the last Friday of the Muslim Holy month of Ramadhan.

Israel police said they had to use force to restore order due to the rioting of the worshippers after evening prayers.

According to Palestinians red crescent emergency services , 88 of the hurt Palestinians were taken to the hospital after they were hit with rubber-coated bullets.

“Police must immediately stop firing stun grenades at worshippers, and the youth must calm down and be quiet,” Mosque official calmed the people.

The UN has called onto Israel to call off and evictions and employ ‘maximum restraints in the use of force’ against protesters.

Israel Supreme court will hold a hearing on the long-running legal case on Monday.
