Israeli forces attack Palestinians protesting desecration of Islamic cemetery

JERUSALEM, Tuesday, October 26, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces attacked Palestinians who gathered and held prayers at Al-Yusufiyah cemetery, located just below the historic wall of Jerusalem, to protest Israel’s continued bulldozing work and digging of the graves of dead Palestinians there.

Israeli forces beat up and attacked Palestinians who were objecting to the desecration of the graves with stun grenades to force them out of the cemetery. One of the protesters was detained by Israeli police and taken to a detention center in the city of Jerusalem.

Israel says it intends to turn the cemetery, located near Lions Gate, one of the gates to the old city of Jerusalem that leads to Al-Aqsa Mosque, into a Jewish biblical park.
