Israeli police have attacked Palestinians protesting against an anti-Islam film insulting the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in the occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem). At least five people were injured after Israeli soldiers fired tear gas and stun grenades on hundreds of Palestinians protesting against the movie at Al-Aqsa Mosque following the Friday Prayers.
Israeli soldiers blocked the demonstrators from marching towards the United States consulate. A number of people have also been arrested following the clashes that broke out between the police and protesters.The demonstrations against the movie began in Palestine on Wednesday during which the protesters burned the US flag in front of the United Nations headquarters in Gaza City. The sacrilegious movie, which is made by an Israeli-American, has sparked protests across the Muslim world. Angry protesters across the world have poured into the streets to condemn the blasphemous movie and demand the US government apologize to the Muslim world. Protests have also erupted in several other countries including Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan in response to the sacrilegious film. TNP/SS
