Israeli forces arrest 60 Palestinians in Holy Quds

Tehran, Feb 22, IRNA – The Israeli military forces busted at least 60 Palestinians on the occasion of Zionists’ aggression on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Israelis’ aggression on Tomb of Prophet Ebrahim (PBUH).

According to Palestinian media ‘Maan’, hundreds of Palestinians opened the gate of Al-Aqsa Mosque after 16 years.

A group of religious figures also attended the rallies against Israelis’ aggression.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Palestinians held demonstrations against Israel aggression.

The rallies has so far resulted in injuring a Palestinian kid.

Earlier on January 22, the Israeli regime declared start of air attacks on northern Gaza on the pretext of retaliating targeting a Zionist soldier. They killed a Resistance member affiliated to Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and injured two others in an artillery attack on eastern Bureij.

The great 'March of Return' rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe, a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since then.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 259 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 26,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
