There are confirmed reports that Israeli forces have surrounded the al-Aqsa mosque in occupied Jerusalem after it was reportedly stormed by Jewish groups.
Witnesses inside the mosque told Al Jazeera on Wednesday that Israeli forces had detained several Palestinian Muslim worshippers inside and were firing tear gas.
Witnesses also reported clashes between a Jewish group and Israeli forces near the mosque after a number of far-right Jews stormed it.
Israeli police closed all gates leading to the mosque and prevented worshipers under 50 from entering, Ma’an news website reported. They also stopped dozens of buses in Jerusalem carrying Palestinian worshipers to the mosque and told them to turn around, the website said quoting Israeli media.
