MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Thirty-one Palestinian worshippers sustained injuries requiring hospitalisation in clashes with Israeli forces near the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Friday, the Palestine Red Crescent Society said.

"31 injured worshippers were transferred from the AlAqsa Mosque to nearby hospitals including the PRCS field hospital. Injuries were due to rubber bullets, sound grenades or assaulting. Dozens of other injuries were treated in the field", the agency wrote on Twitter.

According to Palestinian media, the Palestinians were injured during the storming of the mosque by the Israeli police, who were trying to disperse the worshippers.
Earlier in the day, the Israeli police said that hundreds of Palestinians, some wearing masks and flying the Hamas flag, launched mass riots on the Temple Mount. According to Israeli law enforcement officers, the demonstrators were throwing stones, setting off fireworks and building barricades, thus creating a threat to Israelis praying at the Western Wall.
The Israeli police said they waited for the end of the morning prayer for worshipers to leave and then used special equipment to disperse the crowd and restore order.
