The new development comes after a week of violence that has claimed the lives of hundreds of civilians, the vast majority of which are Palestinians.

On May 10, Israeli armed forces raided Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Haram esh-Sharif, the third holiest place in Islam, ahead of a march by Zionist nationalists celebrating Israel’s 1967 takeover of the city’s eastern half.
