The report from Express-News, reveals: “Demonstrators at Damascus Gate were reportedly targeted, roughly half a mile from Temple Mount where last Monday’s clashes at Al-Aqsa Mosque – which is Islam’s third holiest site – triggered a barrage of rockets fired at Israel by Hamas in Gaza.
A water cannon was also deployed, and mounting police were on the scene, which Palestinians ran from flash grenades aimed at dispersing the angry crowds”. Netanyahu has vowed that Israel would press on, for now, with an offensive to destroy the capabilities of the armed factions Hamas and Islamic Jihad, amid calls by the United States and other world powers for an end to the conflict.
