OCCUPIED JERUSALEM —AlGhad— Israeli occupation forces announced today, Thursday, sending military reinforcements to secure the occupied city of Jerusalem ahead of anticipated clashes tomorrow, Friday.

For five straight days, Palestinians have refused to enter the Aqsa Mosque complex through the electronic gates installed by the Israeli occupation forces, during the lockdown of the Aqsa Mosque.

Since the resistance operation last Friday, which led to the martyrdom of three Palestinians and the death of two Israeli coppers, calls for protests have not ceased.

A ‘Furious Friday’ is expected tomorrow, as protests will intensify and violence may erupt due to the Israeli attempts to suppress demonstrations.

Israeli occupation army spokesperson told the French Press Agency (AFP), that the occupation authority will consider whether or not the forces will remain in the occupied city throughout the weekend.

Meanwhile, doubts have been building up in regards to the Israeli Prime Minister’s capacities to retract the unacceptable security measures, imposed last week.

Whether the authorities will remove the electronic gates ahead of the Friday sermon remains to be seen.
