Israeli Police Arrest Palestinian Worshipers near East Jerusalem's flashpoint of Al-Aqsa Mosque
The Zionist police forces arrested on Thursday two Muslim worshipers near East Jerusalem's flashpoint of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, The World Bulletin news website reported.

In a statement, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the two worshippers had been detained following a skirmish between Palestinians and Zionist settlers.

No injuries were reported.

Scores of settlers forced their way into the flashpoint compound earlier Thursday.

"As many as 30 settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa compound through the Al-Magharbeh gate under the Zionist police protection," Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, general director of Al-Aqsa Affairs, told media outlets.

He said Muslim worshippers had opposed the settlers' presence, forcing them to leave through the compound's Al-Silsila gate.

The Zionist entity occupied Palestine officially in 1948, when the sel-proclaimed Jewish entity was declared a "state."
