Jerusalem: Israel assaults and detains Palestinians celebrating the Prophet Muhammad's birth

Dozens of Palestinians were injured and arrested by Israeli forces while marking the birth of the Prophet Muhammad at Damascus Gate plaza in occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday.

Israeli military forces dispersed the Palestinians who gathered at Damascus Gate with skunk water, dogs, and beatings with clubs. They also fired stun grenades and teargas canisters, eyewitnesses told Middle East Eye.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said that 17 people suffered various injuries caused by rubber-coated bullets, teargas suffocation, beatings and stun grenades. Ten Palestinians were hospitalised, while the rest were treated on site.
