Israeli forces arrest Sheikh Raed Salah and other Palestinian dignitaries during a sit-down strike in Jerusalem

Thousands of Palestinians in various Gaza and West Bank districts on Tuesday marched in protest against Israeli demolition of parts of the holy Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem.

In the Aqsa Mosque itself hundreds of worshippers who managed to reach the holy site despite Israeli restrictions marched towards Maghareba gate and staged a sit-in to protest the Israeli demolition of the Maghareba Bridge.

The Israeli police arrested nine Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem after clashing with policemen, who blocked the Muslims from reaching the Aqsa compound.

Large numbers of Israeli police cordoned off the entire vicinity of the Aqsa Mosque since dawn Tuesday and prevented all those under 50 years of age from passing.

Friends of Al-Aqsa calls upon the British government to demand Israeli occupying forces immediately stop the vandalising the boundaries of Holy al-Aqsa Sanctuary. We further ask for people to lobby their respective government to condemn Israel and bring an end to the violations.

Friends of Al Aqsa is a voluntary organisation concerned with the defence of
Al Aqsa Haram Sharif and the protection of Palestinian Human Rights.
